Hi all.

I've just written some instructions on how I touched up the cabinet on a faded pinball machine.

I may very well be re-inventing the wheel but in case it's of use the instructions are here:

Kind regards... Clark

wow I like it! I think I might just give this a go on my faded Dracula pin. Can anyone tell me where to get these glass paints from?
Thanks for sharing your work!

Hi there.

Funny that, someone was just showing me their faded Dracula this afternoon. I was going to email them my "before" and "after" shots of Black Rose as well as the "paints" I used when I thought I may as well enrich the web a bit and write up a web page. I emailed them the link just before I posted to your forum.

I am sure that Dracula will work out fine, it's red on black where it was faded so you can't go wrong.

Cheers... Clark

Nice work! Great photos.
Good idea using the transparent inks.
Could probably use them on backglasses as well.

Hi Hamish (and everyone else ;) )

Kingsland eh? You're just around the corner.

In case it's not obvious my email address is clark@kiwi.gen.nz, it would be great to see you when you're over.

Kind regards... Clark
