After reading a few of the tips on here (thanks Rookieblue) and the putterlounge thread with that great orange paintfill I figured I'd mess around with my wedges and see if I could come up with anything that looked good.

I know orange can't be everyones favorite color, but it is mine so. Here are some pics of what I did. I had never done paint fill before but it was so easy.

I used the Tamiya x-acrylic. I purchased a few colors (at 2.50 each its tough beat the prices) and I used an aerosol paint stripper.

Here is the step by step

Spray Paint stripper

I waited the suggested amount of time and it stripped out all the black. And exposed white paintfill under the black. So I had to do this twice.

So here we go, after two paint stripper applications. Made the wedges look nice and shiny also.

Ok, that powerbilt wedge I dont actually play. That is my test paint fill wedge since I bought two oranges. A translucent and a normal orange. I wanted to test that wedge out first. Its a super old wedge I dug out of the garage.

Here is that powerbilt. That transulcent oragne was a no go. It just looked weird.

So I went with that regular orange color on my actual wedges here

I did two coats of that orange just to make it bright and fill in as much as I could. Im pretty pleased with the results. I hit them on the course and the paint has help up so far.

Looks good, glad any tips I gave you helped. Don't worry, you'll be paintfilling everything now, it's addicting. I think I paintfilled a divot tool the other day.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

    Spent this afternoon in a Golf----- checking out the equpiment. Can't afford to buy a bag of tees, so all we can do is dream. Used to do this in sporting goods stores when I was 12 , too. Now I'm 54. Nothing was really changed. All this great stuff and no money to buy it.

    Why do manufacturers put an iron equivalent on hybrids when the distances seem so much greater than irons. Surely it'd be better to just give lofts. Incidentally, perhaps irons should have degrees of loft on them instead of numbers too!
