A Fine Tip!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a tough time writing or outlining anything in paint. No matter how tiny my brush is, the fact that there are bristles at all leaves a margin for error. Then I came across this neat trick on Pinterest!
By the way, if you’re not already “pinning,” you don’t know what you’re missing. Pinterest is an absolute goldmine for finding and sharing pictures and ideas for crafts, art, tips, and DIY projects (among every other category in existence).
Anyway, enough about my Pinterest addiction. I found this incredibly crafty tip for fine point painting.

Take the tip off an Elmer’s Glue bottle and screw it onto a bottle of acrylic paint. Make sure you wash out the glue tip so you don’t have any sticky residue blocking the opening or mixing with your paint.
That’s all it takes! Literally, that’s it. Start outlining! Just take a few practice swings to get the hang of how much pressure to apply for your desired level of paint flow. This makeshift new tool simple to make and perfect for kids or grown-ups.
