Restoration Update: Painted Lettering

Last week was a detail-oriented week for the Kelsey press. Once the black paint had dried, I went over all the raised lettering with a tiny brush and silver paint. I used the same kind of paint as I did on the rest of the press.

I chose silver because I really wanted the letters to pop out and match the new steel bar stock we are going to put the press back together with. This paint layer seems to be drying MUCH more quickly, so I should start getting the press back together soon!
