I got it! I forgot I bought some artist's blending stumps for just this purpose. Worked perfectly!

Brayden- That's a good idea, but the shape of the part won't allow it in this case.


Snake- I've done that on body emblems, it works great. Unfortunately, the color of these letters is aluminum and red.


Chris- That looks great, how did you do it?


Thanks for the input, guys!

Barrel stoves are cheap and they work, but they will burn out over time. If you can find an airtight, fire brick lined stove, it will be much more efficient. Something along the lines of the old Fishers. I have been heating my home exclusively with wood for 30 years, and have used the same stove all those years. Look around a bit, I bet there's one sitting in somebodys garage that they haven't gotten rid of cause it's too heavy to move! Good luck and stay warm!

Looks like you might have sprayed it too heavy. There's a very fine line with that stuff: the right amount and it looks like chrome, a little more and it looks like aluminum. Also make sure your black base is really smooth and shiny. The black is what really does the job.
