The paint was Testors enamel paint from a hobby store (Sublime Green, French Blue, White). The process went a little like this:
1. Clean clubs thoroughly
2. Soak in acetone (don't go over the hosel or the acetone will detach the head from the shaft/melt the ferrule)
3. Use a stiff brush, toothpick, anything with a sharp tip to remove all the paint
4. Overfill the area with paint and let it dry for 5-10 minutes
5. Wipe over the area with a paper towel dipped in acetone to remove the overfill (I cut up an old credit card to prevent the acetone from getting into the painted area and wrapped the paper towel around it)
Between colors I opened up the oven door a little bit, turned it on to 200 degrees and rested the heads on the door to expedite the drying. I used Scotch tape to tape over some areas to prevent getting paint into areas with different colors. Masking tape is just too thick for such an intricate design. After everything was painted, I left them on the oven door for an hour or so, then set them on a heating vent overnight. I used a nail polish sealer the next day after everything was dry, then wiped off the extra with acetone again.
I used a little paint brush I found at the hobby store next to the paint. They had little plastic handles about the width of a toothpick, but at the end they had a tiny-tiny brush. They came in a 10-pack and worked perfect.
