Of course, it's probably harder for clubs in the GI/SGI realm that have a lot of "flash" already built into them, huh?
Any average joe can do this. I just followed instructions on some other sites. All you need is some paint stripper, acrylic paint, a few basic tools and patience. To do some of the work, you'd have to work with one color, apply it, let it dry, rub off the excess, then go back an paint in the other colored sections. To apply the paint, it doesn't have to be perfect. I used a toothpick dipped in the acrylic paint and let it spread in the grooves and let it dry. You can let it overflow out of the area and use a light nail polish remover to buff it. Then do it all again with the remaining areas. If I worked on this straight, it's probably taken me about two full days to do all this. In total it took me a month to get everything done.
I think being that it's a blade made it easier. I can't imagine doing this on some of those SGI/GI clubs, but then I haven't tried it out.
