These "brushes" really do make applying this type of pigment easier. I've been using them for a few months and they make accurate application easy - especially on rifles, machine guns! The set I have is a cheap one but has some brushes with very fine points. Great for rubbing away masking fluid too!

Great "how-to". Are these the same as clay shaping rubber/silicone tipped brushes?

I received a set of these brushes today, and they look to be a very useful addition to my tool arsenal.🎨
Thank you for the very informative video!
