Nice. Did you do any prep work or just mask and rattle it on?

Reminds me of the silver twill g10 inlays used on some Kershaws.

Not much prep - removed stock from rifle ,used a gentle degreaser/cleaner on the stock. Then about an hour of taping using painters tape. Then three light coats - 10 minutes in between. Then about 10 mins after final coat - carefully removed the tape. Instructions said to remove the tape while the paint was still a little wet. Let it sit overnight to cure.

I don't know about the "feel" but it sure makes an otherwise dull looking stock look darn nice. Good idea!:tee:

Update - I have taken the rifle out twice for a little plinking , am already getting some wear. However I did not put on 5-6 coats as the can suggested. So I will remask it and put on a few more light and one medium coating. Who knows may follow up with a matte clearcoat on the whole stock for protection. Just thought I would let ya'll know.
