    STIppling

    Here are a couple of STI/SVI double stacks that I just finished the stippling on. They are getting a lot of other work, but thought that you might enjoy seeing something a bit different. I removed all of the faux stock and checkering, did and ergonomic reshape of the grips and then stippled them. My son says it looks like fingerprints

    Enjoy!

    Kinda wild and different. The stippling is a lot more subtle in person. The flash on the camera makes the stippling look deeper and more aggresive than it really is. Looks more like rough out leather.

    How long does it take to do one?

    If I told how I do my stippling, I would have to shoot you!
    Just kidding. I use a soldering iron with custom made tips. The real trick is knowing how hot to get the plastic to get the texture you want without weakening the area or burning clear through! You have to use a temp controlled soldering iron at just the right temp as well.

    nice work.

    I did one of my Glocks a while back and have been very pleased with the results. It's very secure in the hand.

    Impressive job. You got it just right.

    I would suggest to anybody that wants to try that...find something suitable to practice on first.
