Buddy’s Box ‘o Metal

I did a dry fit by hand and super excited. I should let this sit for a bit (really? Longer?) to know what I want. I think labeling each knob may be too much and take away from the crackle.

Mk I. Was just a quick sketch but this is kind of the direction I’m thinking. I’m thinking white border and fill in with both yellow or blue to match the knobs.

Chipping away. Filled in the letters and outlined. May need another coat of white. Still debating if I should fill in with color.
I would thin the paint down and make a wash and kind of hit the corners of the letters making a sort of shadowing effect in color. Does that makes sense?

So, I tried the shading effect that @jjjimi84 suggested and it didn't work very well. I need to keep practicing that and may try on a different project or scrap piece. I decided to fill in the block lettering with solid colors and outlined in with an acrylic pen. I'm gonna let this sit for a day or two before sealing it up with some clear coat. For now, I think this is done, but want to make sure before committing.
