Painting Earrings

Making Grimlies more awesome.  Yes, "awesome" - everyone's favourite adjective *ahem*

Step1. Lasercut the earrings with the backing paper on.  Heavy engraving cuts through the paper.
Step2. Using a fine brush, fill the engraving with India ink or model making paint (I use Tamiya).  Make sure that the paint fills all the grooves, but doesn't run off the edges of the cut characters.
Step3. Wait for paint to dry completely and carefully remove the backing paper.
Step4.  All ready for the addition of findings!
