    Well a custom painted pair of icons. I had some extra touch up paint from my car and I really never liked the black icons in my batwolfs so I decided to paint them. With some advice from batwolf I sanded them down and panted them. I'm letting them dry before I put a clear coat on them but here is a pic of a work in progress. More to come

    Reminds me of BAPD77's custom yellow painted Antix icons :D nice work! gotta show us the final product. :D what color frame is your batwolf?
    im surprised O doesn't offer more team yellow icons, especially for their OCP Batwolf. That is one awful selection of Icons for that Batwolf.

    I will post some pictures of my final work. The clear coat is drying as I am speaking. I am no painter so they are not perfect but they look nice to me. My batwolfs are the Black Ink/Black Iridium. I got the first pair that came into Sunglass hut almost a year ago. I think december marks the one year

    you probably want really high grain, probably 400-1000. and regular spray-can clear coats (from auto marts etc) works wonders!

    I used a 600 Grit sandpaper. It worked good i did put a clear coat on them. I did not use any spray paint though. I used the touch up paint you buy for a car. It has a little brush and that is what i used.

    Here is a picture of my finshed project.

    yeah, spray paint is definitely the way to go when painting icons.

    I know spray paint is the way to go but the paint I want is not sold in spray version so I had to go with what's even made. I won't have these icons on there the whole time cause I love how the red metallic looks but they will be used.
