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.
