First proper go a stippling

Recommended Posts

Thought I’d revive this thread as I’ve had some time/money to get back into this. 

 

Trying out a couple of different ideas on my trusty TM practice frame

I can't be the only one who thinks the stipling just above the mag release on the second photo looks like swastikas?

🤔

 

Think that says a lot about you 😂

Went with something other that a weave (swastika) 

 

Borders need working on but reaonably pleases with it

It's like one of those pictures we all had in the nineties, keep putting my nose on the screen & then slowly moving it away.

tbh I was hoping for a naked lady, but I'm pretty sure I can see a wee knight strangling a dragon 🐉, well at least I hope it's a dragons head he's choking 😏

Trying out some different tips/teqniques for the basic dot stipple. 

 

Nice comparison with the original, much more aggressive grip and better looking I think.

Also built up the frame I did a few days ago. Resonantly happy with it, but have ordered some tools to hopefully give cleaner boarders.

Sunburst frame fitted up to a full gun, along side another just finished in basket weave pattern. 

 

Ignore the mag release on the sunburst, haven’t got round to making the WE/TM hybrid mag catch yet.

Some very nice work.

 

Are you using a soldering iron or wood burner?

 

Where do you get your tips from?

 

I'm partial to the conventional very small dot stippling myself, and have been thinking of giving it a go, so advice on tools would be much appreciated.

I’m using a wood burner with tips from OT defence. Small dot can be easily done with a soldering iron though. 
 

The actual stippling isn’t really too difficult,(depending on pattern), it’s the prep work that’s the hard bit.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I wasn't anticipating preparation being a problem, since the grip I want to do is smooth and ready for stippling. 

 

https://www.mlemart.com/uac-sculptor-grip-plastic-for-tokyo-marui-hi-capa-series-black/ Grips like this with a smooth surface don't need sanding down.

 

Is there something I am missing?

 

Thanks again.

You’ll want to cut a border in and recess it as it looks a bit odd without one. 
 

Having said that if you’re not bothered by that then yea, it’ll be an easy job
