Perhaps wetsanding with a very fine grain, say 800 or maybe even 1200?
I'll leave the answer to those who actually has an idea about it, cus I don't!

The method I used was a random orbital sander , one that spins as well as making the small circular movement that normal orbitals make . I tried various grits from 120 to 800 and they all work , they just produce a slightly different finish . I tried it on clear to produce an opaque look ..... worked very well .
Go ahead my friend! As I mentioned earlier, I have no idea of how to do it, so I'll leave it to the experts!

Dark Blade? Child please, that thing is soooo 2003-2007! Unfortunately I'd have to agree, Dark Blade is the most amazing mod ever done!
