Question Plasti-Dip Rear Emblem Letters

So had plasti-dipped my rear emblem on my 2013 V6 and peeled away the outer chrome ring a while ago, but now when I look at it something is missing.... the "FORD" letters need to be black. Now when I originally peeled it off the letters came right up with the rest, no breaking at all. So my question is, for anyone who has done this, how would I go about doing the letters?

The only way I can think of is to spray and very carefully use an exacto knife to create the breaks, but before I do that I wanted to see if anyone else had a better way to do it.

Thanks in advance!

thats about the only way i see going about it. for the outer edge of the letters you could tape index cars down to create the break. painters tape isn't thick enough to create a good break.the plastidip sticks and peels off with it. the insides you'll definitely just have to cut.

You could use a touch up paint pen and color in ford whatever color u wanted.
I'm going to do that to my cobra emblems on Wednesday.

Thanks for the responses!

I've been watching some videos on how people do stripes on their cars with plastidip and it got me to thinking that maybe I should try some 1/8" scotch blue tape, do a couple heavy coats real quick and then peel the tape off quickly in order to get that nice sharp edge.

I may need to cut the tape for those tricky sections in the F, middle of the O, middle of the R and middle of the D. I may try that sometime this weekend.
