Do It Yourself!

But, you really can do it yourself. I’m always looking for ways to save money and having more than two GLOCKs in my house it was well worth taking the time and effort to learn the art myself. Am I as good as some of the pro-stipplers out there? Nope. But now I’m saving cash doing my own stippling — and it grew into a business after getting out of the service — so I can buy more ammo, right?

With the right tools, a bit of patience and practice, just about anyone can do a good looking, effective stipple job. The key is to do your due diligence and research the process; decide whether it’s something interesting to you, and if it fits your skill sets. Good eyesight, dexterity and attention to detail are all part of the game. Then practice until you’re confident in your ability — before you start on an expensive gun! To get started you need a wood burner or soldering iron, tip or tips of your liking, and some material to practice on. Let’s get going, then.
