Default Rate my stipple work

I'm trying my hand at stippling and would like your opinions on my work.

I started on two A2 pistol grips and went for fairly common patterns - lava rock and sprinkle (is that what it's called??).

I understand I didn't have to stipple at the top inner portion of the grip, but I was just testing a different tip.

glad you didn't do it on a polymer handgun. It's a bit aggressive I think, notch it down a little.

The first grip may be a bit too abrasive for me- the second may just work. The ultimate test may be just to try it out and practice some more. Let us know a range report when you have time. Thanks for sharing. Perhaps bordering and symmetry should be your next focus. Thanks again OP.

Just looking for honest criticism. If you want to rate it - scale of 1-10, 10 being best.

In my honest opinion..shouldn't matter what people think of how it looks or feel. It's how you like it..if you like the rough texture make deep cuts, if not then not so deep. Your hands will be covering 80-90% of it so how it looks shouldn't matter too much. As long as it's suppose to do what it's intended to do (better grip) then you should be fine. Just my opinion..as for me $20 talon grips (skate board texture..yes I like it rough)

That's what I thought would be the case...but to me the sprinkle pattern (1st grip) is more comfortable than the the 2nd. To each his/her own I guess.

I would say that the bar stippling is probably on a Coarse side, while the point stippling is probably on a Medium side from what I have felt personally.

I think if you want a more impressive result, you should focus on edges, and practice stippling to a nice sharp edge. That would immediately set your work a bit higher than the rest of amateur stipplers.
