I'm guessing from the smilie that was a joke, but for the general information of any one thinking about using a toothpick for detail work: Don't. Paint has a surface tension just like water. That is going to hold the paint in a little "bubble" in the end of the toothpick/straight pen/scribe/whatever. It is going to begin drying and getting "gummie" very quickly. That same surface tension will carry the paint along the bristles of a brush and keep it wet and flowing much longer and giving you much better control of it's placement. If you need to paint detail work, follow Moffeaton's example and get a small 00 or 000 sable brush. It's worht the investment.Originally posted by phase pistol@Dec 29 2005, 04:50 PM
