    Painting fine lines...

    I'm having a hella lot of trouble painting thin lines for the Tau symbol on the front of a Stealth suit, I can't paint thin enough or cleanly enough. I've tried fine paintbrushes, toothpicks, everything... what do I use for the REALLY fine lines?

    I always used a Fine Detail Brush. mix ur paints with water, and just take a little point of paint. that way, when ur totally relaxed, you should be able to do it. or at least, I was.

    You can try using a technical pen like the ones drafters and architects use for fine thin lines. You can pick them up at most arts & crafts stores. I've started using a .005 gauge disposable technical pen to good effect on banners and the like.

    Hope that helps....
