This is a simple finish that doesn’t cost all that much, and looks great, especially on old T.P. Mills putters!

Before Starting This Tutorial, Your Putter Must

Materials Needed

  • Birchwood Casey Gun Blue
    • Perma Blue Liquid Gun Blue Kit– I don’t think that purchasing the entire kit is necessary unless you don’t have a sandblasting station.
    • Individual Bottle– If you purchase this individual bottle, you will just need to use acetone or rubbing alcohol to do the preliminary cleaning as shown in the video.
  • Q-Tips- for applying the Liquid Gun Blue- if you purchase the kit, these are unnecessary
