    Let's tackle the rear sights now.


    We applied Glow-On Yellow and Green liberally to both guns and trimmed the excess.
    With a small x-Acto knife, we first flatten the paint and then we trim it






    I believe this is perfectly functional and it looks good enough.






    We are making the point that when it comes to things like paint you decide when to stops.
    There is no a good or a bad way to do apply paint, there are only good or bad outcomes.


    If it doesn't look right start again.


    We are using Glow-On Yellow here.
    Anyways, we trim the edges of the paint application as such:

    We trimmed the edges around and inside the notch and here is the result.
    Pretty good looking, yes?


    No, it's not the Mona Lisa guys, but it works for me.

    Existentially speaking, the paint on top of the guns makes more sense.

    We like to take pictures of the light of the moon.
    I haven't seen the moon lately...
    But, as soon as we do we'll go out there and take some snapshots of these two firearms.
    Like these two very nice photos:










    One can appreciate these two close-ups, Glow-On is not your regular paint, it can be molded into a thing.
    It has volume, mass, it absorbs energy and then it releases it in the form of afterglow.

    On this pistol, we applied Glow-On Aqua to the rear and Glow-On Yellow to the front sights.


    Glow-On Aqua is white in daylight and it has Aqua afterglow.
    Glow-On Yellow is fluorescent Yellow in daylight and it has a yellow-green afterglow.

    A quick recap.
    If you just arrived at this thread.
    This is what we've been talking about:


    customize your gunsights for a few dollars.
    If you own a firearm or several firearms with standard white dots, plain sights, iron sights or such.
    Add visibility under low light conditions and a nice fluorescent color with Glow-On Super Phosphorescent.
    Available colors: Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Original, Green, Blue, and Aqua.




    We take on a set of standard white dot gunsights, or plain military style or just iron sights, what have you.
    in this case a small vial or Glow-On Red.






    A simple process really, first clean the area with alcohol and a clean paper towel.
    Stir the Glow-On dip the wooden applicator and load it with the help of the vial's rim.





    A nice generous bead of paint, like a drop, build it while you apply the product.





    After it dries charge with a LED lamp, the glow improves with time as the paint cures and solidifies.
    don't mess with it for a couple of days to let the binder adhere nicely while it cures.






    Here we see the benefit of using the product:






    Nice!

    We've obviously made a move towards the GLow-On Red now.
    Let's have some look in daylight.

    We are trying to get back on track here.
    Let's continue with these two pieces here:






    Regardless of the 20 F outside, we spent some time exploring the possibilities and even if we didn't find any moon, the atmosphere was filled with freezing dew which made for a nice setting.


    *Remember to perform a safety check before you work on your firearm.
    Remove magazines, clips, etc.
    Open the action pull the slide open bolts, whathaveyou and make sure several times there is no ammo inside the barrel.
