Practice with a crayon. Go over the area in a circular motion. Once you get good coverage, buff it off with a soft cloth. Repeat as required. My original crayon job is over a year old and still looking good. Armadillo helps with that.

Well I already have the lacquer stick in front of me. Buff with a soft cloth you say, I believe David used paper (as not to get into the letters themselves). Anyone else?

I applied the color with a back and forth method, pushing the paste in the groves from both angles.
This will assure complete coating without any voids or air pockets.
Then I scraped off the bulk paste with ridged piece of cardboard.
Do this while not disturbing the material in the groves.
After the color paste started to set up, I wiped the rest off with a rag. Then detailed cleaned with a q-tip w/ just a little mineral spirits. After full cure, I polished the surface.

i used Old School's crayon method (red) on my bi-tone. Still looks great and has lasted about 2 months and 800 rounds. But I did it also on my black service and the crayon runs out everytime I shoot it. Guess its the finish on it. Good luck with the laquer stick, curious if it lasts longer and is easy to remove (I like to change colors periodically---yeah, I live on the edge! )

Cool, I applied it in a quick and rough method, and it worked just fine. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

Ehn, mine looks great and I touched it right after, I suppose if you had wet hands and put your fingers over the lettering you'd have an issue, otherwise...

Good stuff though.

Oh wow, I didn't have that issue. Ehn, mine might have been harder though (shipped to MN and all, it was pretty cold).
