Found out who Anthony Taranto is and decided to give it a try myself.  From Michigan and obviously a State fan.

Equpiment
  • 1/8" stamp dot (going to use the letters to put "MSU" in the right corner
  • Custom "Michigan" stamp I found on amazon
  • Alcohol Pads (70% iso)
  • Sharpie Paint Pens (extra fine)
  • 3 lb hammer
Problems
  • Not sure if it's the paint quality or if the alcohol pad is soaked too much, but it's hard to cleanly wipe away the paint without streaking it on the rest of the club
  • Stamps are not nearly as good as the pro ones, can't find anything that gives me that nice round flat letter look without paying $130 from Young Bros
  • Need to find the right stamp size because 1/8" is too small and 1/4" is too big
If you have any tips or suggestions, please help me out!

I do a lot of paint filling myself and have a few 'tricks' that I've learned in doing so:

I've always used nail polish (cheapest I could find), nail polish remover that has acetone, and paper towels or q-tips for the harder to reach spots. When I start out, I've always found that taking the old paint out works best especially if you're applying a lighter color on to a darker color. So I'll soak the heads in nail polish remover (the longer the better & easier it'll come out). I usually use a safety pin or something that has a sharp point to try and get as much out as possible so you have a clean slate to work with.

When doing multiple colors, do one color at a time, that way the colors don't bleed into one another like what happened to you. For your project, it might be a little harder to do that since you have so much paint fill you wanted to do.. For my irons (see pic), I did the Cobra emblem first since there's no other filling in that area.  Then I did the King MB/CB and then put a piece of scotch tape over it so my nail polish doesn't bleed into it; then did the two lines, which was the trickiest part. When I apply the nail polish, I'll give it a good amount of time to dry, that way I don't accidentally take out any fill in the crevasses. And when removing the nail polish, I just take the nail polish remover and put it on the paper towel and go back and forth with some pressure and it might take a couple times doing so. Also note that any nail polish that is left on the paper towel will smear on any other places you have already paint filled.

If there's any questions or want more info, PM me and I'll do my best to help you or anyone out!
