So I've seen guys that have painted the "leatherman" part of their LM scales. Just paint inside of the lowered part that made the words (does that make sense? lol)
Anyway, I want to know the best method for this, as I want to spice up my new watch slightly. With the muted colors of it, I thought a very small dash of red might be cool There is a very small logo on the clasp of it, and I thought if I could get some red testors model paint in there it might look kind of neat.
Anyway, whats the best method of filling in such small spaces of lettering like that? Is model paint a good choice?

Eh, for as small as this is (and its not detachable) that'd be too much money to spend (Ive had many things PCd before and know its not expensive, but not cheap, any more than 2 bucks is too much for this haha)
On multitool.org someone said testors will work and using a Qtip for application. I'll try it...

The problem is that even though I wiped up the excess instantly, it has stained/painted parts that I did not want painted. Because of this I stopped where I was, so even the stamped area that I wanted painted is not a bright red because I didnt want to do more layers. Oh well, it'll work out, I'll just have to get it cleaned up tonight or tomorrow or something
