did you find an easy way to do the lettering, or did you just tough it out with a steady hand?

 

I was able to do a trick with my heat gun. I heated up the coin so it was warm to the touch. I then used really thinned paint and a sharp tipped brush to paint on the coin letters. I had to do a few coats on the letters but it was able to hold the letters in tacked.

Didn't that mess with the already laid down paint? Or did you do the letters first?

I didn't seem to have and issue with it. I did the blue first then the letters. Come to think of it I may have used the same technique with the blue area.
