Default Re: Paint to refresh engraved markings...

For recessed lettering, I've no suggestions. But for somewhere that has raised lettering, I have a tip. It comes from an old uncle of mine . On Gravestones, the raised letters are always/usually finished in black. He saved bits of scrap cloth, cork bottle stoppers and elastic bands. The cloth he cut into squares, and fitted to the cork bottle top. He then added a little black paint to a tin lid, dabbed the cloth in the paint and applied to the face of the letter.
