Default Re: Paint to refresh engraved markings...

It might be worth a try on a bit of the panel (can you tell what the original filling material was?) as it's not 'wax' but rather a shellac of some kind so needs quite a bit of heat to melt.

Enamel is possible (I've done it with Humbrol), but needs to be wiped off with white spirit before the thin unwanted parts outside the engraved markings have dried too hard, but when those in the markings have set enough so as not to dissolve and wash out. I had inordinate trouble with an AVO, and should have just used a soft wax-type filler for that, I think.
