    Well I went ahead and did mine.   Heres the irons, I'll get some pics of the wedges and putter once they dry!   Not sure if I like the blue for the "forged" though..   Might have to go back to black..

    Here is my SC Futura X Dual Balance....

  5. Wow, looks cool. I also got the new ap2 but I am afraid to ruin them if I paintfill them. They are great in performance.

    You won't. Its easier than you think. Do a litle googling, read some instructions and try it out on an old club first if you are really worried. Clean the fill area with acetone and dry it well before painting. Be patient with yourself as you learn

    Your patience will be rewarded! Acrylic nail polish is great! Lots of colors to chose, it is waterproof and wears well.

    Very much easier than it sounds.  and if it doesnt come out right, try it again!   just remember to keep acetone, stripper, etc. away from the hozel!

    Did you remove the factory black paint first? Or just color change?

    I removed all factory paint first using a gel like high strength paint remover.   Just remember to keep it away from anything plastic, adhesive, and the hosel!

    Acetone works well to remove paint from my experience, again be careful not to get it on anything you do not want dissolved! LOL

    Ryan,

    Read through these replies. Then, if you need more do a search on how to paint fill your golf club. You will see, some differences in approach but it's pretty easy once you get the stuff you need collected and get started. Rule number one when using acetone (nail polish remover). A. C. Moores has enamel or acrylic model paint and any drugstore sells acrylic nail polish. They are all waterproof and fairly resistant to wear. Get some clear nail polish top coat to finish the job off. Follow the wiping and drying instructions. If you get out side the boundaries or smear it, don't worry. Clean it up and start over.

    MAKE SURE TO CLEAN YOUR CLUB BEFORE YOU PAINT IT! Old toothbrush works real good.

    Nail Polish Remover is ACETONE:
    KEEP IT AWAY FROM PLASTIC, URETHANE LOGO INSERTS AND HOSELS. IT WILL DISSOLVE  PLASTIC AND MAR URETHANE inserts.

    Looks good!  I like that you didn't go overboard with the blue, especially on the wedges.  Combining the white with the blue makes it look a little more classy in my opinion.

    I would like to have a red alignment line on my GoLo-S and yours looks great. I would also like to know what paint you used, and how you went about painting yours. i.e. did you mask it off, or just have a steady hand?  

  18. Curtis M

    Curtis M

    Chris, great looking Futura!!    Go Hawkeyes!!

    But anywho, the type of paint I used is called Model Master Acryl.    Honestly I am not sure how well it will hold up once I finally get to swing my new babies.   Hopefully good but if not, on to another paint I will go!     

    As for my process....   I am pretty sure no one in the world has that steady of a hand to do some of those Vokey letters.  In the spots I could though that is how I did it.   The rest was just fill in over the edges, let dry, then softly rub over with cotton slightly wet with acetone over the area.   I will gladly help anyone with more instruction, just ask!

    Looking good guys!

    You should be able to pick up some paint pens from a hobby store that have fine metal tips, almost like a needle. They definately help with the smaller fine lines.

    Hope that helps,

    I use acrylic model paint and believe it or not, acrylic nail polish. Your choice of colors. Nail polish offers lots of color choices! LOL!

    Just like Curtis said, don't worry if you go outside the lines, just fill as best you can and let dry. Then wipe flat with an acetone dampened wipe, cosmetic cleanser rounds (available at any drugstore or girlfriend) or just a piece of paper towel folded flat. Wipe excess off gently so as not to remove any fill. Again, let it dry for a good while longeras the acetone will soften the fill slightly when you wipe over it. Overwise it will smear when you touch it and you won't know why.

    Then fill again with clear acrylic nail polish. Let dry for a good while and gently wipe off any excess clear over flow. Put clubs on bench or drying rack and let dry completely before handling club. Painted mine last spring. Still looked great when I sold them. Got top dollar, too!

    Easy Peasey fix and it makes you happy when your done!

    very interesting wedge! What loft is your "rocco" E wedge? Quite a bit of heel ground off. Would you care to share more about your  perfomance goals with this wedge grind?

    Sure, it is 60 loft. I used this E grind for my soft condition lob wedge. It has extra heel relief, because I like to open the face around the green and I hold my hands low on pitch shots. It was a great club! I just sold it. I'm holding out in hopes that the Hand Ground models will have the new TX3 groves soon!

    I saw at the Waste Management Open this week in Phoenix one of the pros experimenting with the same putter as I had some custom paintfill done (albeit by the Scotty Cameron CS).  Sill a great putter...may look a little odd though to some!

    Sharpie also makes some paint pens that will do the trick.  I have done all of my wedges over the years.

    I bought a paint stick at a local hardware store but was not aware that sharpie made paint pens.  The paint stick does not come in a small point.  Thanks for that tip.  Will have to get those to use in the future, I like their points.  Did one of my older SC putters in all black.  Thanks TT.  :-)

    How durable is it using a Sharpie??

  32. Chris S

    For durability I would suggest not using anything that is water-based. Use an oil-base paint and give it ample time to cure before using. 1-2 days should be good.

    If you wanted to remove all of the paint and try other colors, what do you use to remove the paint?  Will acetone remove the acrylic paint you mentioned?

    Acetone works well with oil based paints. I would use Denatured alcohol for water based paints.

    As far as the specific brands of paint....On many putters DIY Painters use Tamiya Paints...sharpies work well also but I prefer paint.  There are a couple other brands I have heard guys using like Testors etc... 

    Acetone works well to strip old paint but be careful this stuff is strong!

    Have fun!

    The Sharpie doesn't last too long - try the paint pen. It's available in all sorts of colors and is durable.

    [/quote]Good point about the paint pen.  Sharpie makes a paint pen, it comes oil based and they are easy to work with.  I picked up some in TT colors (red, black, white) this past week and they make a very fine point which makes it easy to do detailed work on the clubs.  Most hobby type shops carry them.  These are not that messy. 

  38. AC RixRox

    It's a Sharpie paint pen and works well in many types of lettering fills. It is made more durable by putting a clear coat of acrylic Hi gloss nail polish over your dry paint fill. Gently Wipe off excess clear coat. It will look factory new! Takes a few tries learning how and when to wipe depending on type of paint, how dry, yadda, yadda, etc.

    You can always wipe it all clean with nail polish remover and start all over or even change colors if it looked better in the bottle than on your club. Have fun with it. Your wife or girlfriend can steer you towards the good stuff.

    Think about it. nail polish is designed to get wet and take abuse. Just like us guys! LOL!

    A tip for removing the paint that gets outside the letters. 

      Acetone is going to pull some of the paint from the letters and risk running into the other colors.  A light brushing with a scotch bright pad will remove the dried excess paint without risk of smearing.

    Hey Team Titleist.

    I read this thread and saw the pics and got totally inspired to give it a try. Thanks for all the tips. I used the Sharpie fine point paint pen oil based.

    I'm obviously not an artist but here's how my first try came out. Not sure the pictures do them justice but here they are. A fun project while we're still under snow here in Ontario.

    Cheers!

    The bag doesn't have the TT logo on it yet, but probably a project for the off-season this winter.    Really psyched on how well it came out and puts the whole set together!

    After seeing yours and how nice they go with the bag, I am re-painting mine!    The blue just doesn't go with anything so I am switching to red and black...    Looking good guys!!

  55. Allen S

    Dan,

    The milled face is not hard at all to paint.  Use the smallest brushes you can find,  I got mine at Hobby Lobby when I got the model paint.  The lettering is deeper than the milling on the face.  Just use enough paint on the brush to fill in the lettering.  I did not remove any paint first, just painted over the letters.  

    I then used a paper towel with acetone on it and very lightly wiped over the letters to remove the excess paint in the milled face as soon as I got through painting.  Do this BEFORE the paint dries.  Just wipe a couple of times very lightly and it will remove any excess paint, but not the paint in the lettering as the lettering is deeper.
