So after reading all the stipple post I decided I wanted to try it out to see just how easy/hard it really was. And I thought I'd post this to give you all ideas on how to practice the technique. I choose to see just how much the stippling actually makes a difference by stippling something I use very often with sweaty hands, my xbox 360 controller. The before and after are truely night and day! I wanted to pass this idea along for anyone out there wanting to practice the technique or wanting to see if you'll like it. You can try it on just about any plastic. It really does take a steady hand, and if you are going to do it on something with a light color be careful not to hold the soldering iron in one place too long or you will get brown spots. (I had a few). I sanded with 150grit sandpaper after it really cleaned it up and made it feel a little less aggressive.
