Also on the grip would you be able to paint it with black food color/vodka or would you need to precolor the chocolate black?
I would start my modeling chocolate (or candy clay) with a color close to want (gray and black). You can paint it, but I would recommend several coats of your luster dust with your alcohol. If the grips stick up from the gun, I would make it a separate piece and layer. If has that "one piece" look you might want to make the grip separately and fit into the rest of the gun. With modeling chocolate you should be able to work it where you only have a fine line. Make some candy clay up and test with it before you do the actual gun - that's always my best advice!! HTH!
