    I was just thinking today that I would like one of Swinks shooter knobs for TNA. I searched his Shapeways page, didn't find one, then came here to send him a PM to ask if he might be willing to make one. Then, I notice his account is inactive. Anyone know how to contact him?

    I'm really happy with how this turned out. I tried paint, and it just didn't look how I wanted, so I delved into scrapbook supplies. This embossing powder is really cool stuff. Basically, I just piled it into place, brushed away any extra, then heated the knob to melt the powder. If you make a mess, you can clean up the melted powder with alcohol (I used 99%), then re-melt to get the gloss back.

    +1 for mentioning “tna” and “shooter knob” in the same sentence. I wouldn’t advise a google search tho with that...

    I was going to post one before, and my battery died while taking the picture. Here's one, though you can't really see the shooter knob all that well.
