Woodchuck DW pistol - WESTAR-35
« on: Dec 08, 2012, 05:35 PM »
My pistol arrived from the Woodchuck earlier this week. I finally got to get the first coat of paint on it this afternoon. If the weather cooperates I should be able to get 2-3 coats of the main color done by tomorrow. I'll post some pics then.


Masked and ready for first coat of paint. I'm thinking of using a black cherry stain on the grips. The rest will be black.

beautiful pistol vod.

my suggestion is try to find some "hammered metal" paint (i use the rust-o-leum hammered silver myself). it really makes it look like metal. most other types will make it look obviously painted IMHO.

Kane - I followed your advice and tried the hammer finish today. It looks much better.
I meant to have more progress to show by now. Hopefully I'll get new pics up this week. The grips have been stained. Now just finish the hammer coat and top it off with clear coat.

WoodChuck here.  I agree, the hammered paint from rustoleum is great paint.

Looking great so far, keep us posted.

Finally got an update for you guys! Hammered black with stained grips. I'm not done yet, still have clear coats to do when I'm satisfied with the finish.

Thanks Woodchuck! I like it so much, I'll buy from you again when I'm ready to add to my arsenal.
I'll do some more to the pistol this weekend.

First stage of weathering. Still some tweaks to come.

Finally finished it. Did another coat of black, buffed with 0000 steelwool and exposed some of the silver paint. Then hit it with a matte clear coat. The silver shows a little along the edges but not a lot.
