Hi guys, just a quick one. I've got an 'urgent' commission for an plaque for the opening of a gym. The plate is going to be A4 and will have a Royal Navy ship's badge about 3" tall with the gym name and the inscription underneath. Obviously these letters are going to be quite a bit bigger than on a gun so I'm going to cut them deeper than normal and was thinking of filling them with paint. I don't know if I can get Rustolium over here but I'll try. What I need to know is the best way of applying it to the lettering; do you use a paintbrush or just rub it into the engraving? Is there an ideal depth of cut for it to sit in and will it stand up to being polished with Brasso or the like?
