I use a cheap 1" foam brush. Put a little on the brush, then apply to the letters. It helps to dab it on, instead of using brush strokes.

Use a heavy peace of card board,Put a heavy coat of paint on it and dab it on the casting.
It may take a 2 or 3 coats.

I used a finger-nail polish brush. Took 2 coats but looks great. Takes time, but you're putting more of "yourself" into a tractor you will take pride in!
