    Luke, I have had one for a couple years. Any grease will work but I prefer a colored grease like blue or red if available and is rather cheap. I use a 6" foam roller and just be sure to re-roll it after your last shot to help prevent rust. Another thing I found is not to put too much on. It makes seeing results more difficult. I also put a hole in the center with a bolt through it and then I hook a 15" string and a stick or pencil to draw my 30" circle in the grease. Just keep it thin and have fun. Lee

    Sand and dust will make it brown in short order if your splatter board is outside 24/7.

    Buy the cheapest grease you can find.

    I hang a cheap grease gun on the side and use a paint roller to spread it after each shot.

    Use a toilet brush, it won't splatter grease on you like a roller will.

    The local Ikes club uses paint and the rest of the clubs I belong to uses grease....grease is the only way to go.....faster to spread and each shot is like on a new board where paint is dimpled and gets thick until you scrape it off.

    White Lithium grease. A brush used for washing white-wall tires works great.

    I think we use talcum powder and baby oil at DGC. Paint roller and pan.

    Crisco works well. Add target dust if you want it dark.
