As a matter of fact yes. and a hair dryer helps too It's something a lot of people do with guns and thats where I learned it. Basically you just fill it with the wax and then wipe it down good. the hair dryer is good for heating up the wax and helping it all adhere together well.

there are actually quite a few ways to do it. But with the Acetal of the block i felt this was the safest.
This vid explains it pretty well

Hope that blows your mind enough. Glad you like it!

The nail polish version in the video is apparently better may in fact look nicer too

I used both of those techniques in a couple of my firearms. the nail polish one lasts longer on things that get abused but the crayon one is easier and allows you to change colors when you want haha.

I don't mean to hijack the thread but here is how it worked out on my rifle.




other than that I really like this build. ill be sure to follow it:thumb:

Just so you guys know I'm not dead. This project isn't dead... I just moved into a new apartment and got started at a new job so hopefully when life calms down a bit I can get back to those last 3 panels I need to make... I was hoping to get this done before this deadline but as we all know nothing ever goes according to plan.. it doesn't help that I have it up and running... Makes it really hard to finish because i'd rather just use haha.
