Best Way to Paint FORD Script on Hood & Not Mess Up

Hobby Lobby is a good place to buy artist brushes. I bought a flat 3/16 wide brush. I used the thin edge for fine lines and the flat for filling. Having a light available that can be moved around helps the raised script stand out better.
I did it free hand in my living room with the panel horizontal. As others have posted you need a brush that comes to a point. The paint needs to be slightly thick. You have to put a little in a small container and let it evaporate a little, so that the brush marks will still flow, but yet it is thick enough that the paint will stay where you put it.
I did post this in the Paint & Bodywork Section, but since this is Ford specific, thought I'd drop it here since most of you are probably well-versed in what to do in this situation.

What is the best method to paint the raised FORD script on the hood without messing up my paint job? I have a few ideas on what to do, but I'm scared I'll mess up my paint job. haha. I don't want to use decals and want to paint it.

I want the best way to paint the red on there and it look full and glossy against the Medium Ford Gray? My fenders don't have the script letters but I do want to either paint or decal those I think. Just worried about the Hood for now.



There is also little handheld sponge-like device that has been used too. The best trctor script logos I've sen aheallbeen had-painted on. I have neither the patience nor a steady hand to even attempt that. I put the vinyl adhesive decals on my 8N and it they look OK at 10 yards despite that they do not quite align with the metal fender quite right.
