    Thanks for the awesome thread an ideas!
    I did one like that, as you said the letter edges had high ridges, when I tried to get them down the yellow base paint came through....I repainted it and left it with out lettering. This method takes some time, but has very little ridge and can be Scothbrighted down also giving it the ink look. Be careful to firmly mash the sticky letter " templates" edges, when rolling it go only once or twice, remember inking is very light compared to paint. I would probably not do this again as I have four hours alone in applying the lettering.

    A few examples of real inking....it appears there is no "perfect" inking, the sloppier the better, the only way you can go wrong is using the wrong color. Members, please add some pics of your inked pieces, Thank you.
