How in the hell do you use one of these? I can't get it to hold any paint and I'm not exactly sure on how to hold it. Also, it's a JS-1, which to my understanding is the finest "q" they make? but it's fairly wide, can I cut it down? It is better for tight turns though, I can't wait till I get some expereience with it. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Hold it 90 degrees to the panel,just use the very tip for doing tight curves.
When you start running out of paint,press down to make the line wider,then lift and go back to tight scrolls.
Gary Jenson demonstrates how to use them in the latest Air Brush Action.
If it's too fat,get a synthetic outliner from Michael's and trim that.

Outliners are best trimmed dry.

lol i kind of thought the same thing when i first got mine, i though its sure fat, but like ian said its long and you load it up, and get rid of the excess on the cup ofpaint, you dont really palette it out like you do a striping brush, use a hand over hand technique to let you keep it upright and let the tip do all the work, nice and light and dont twist the brush, when doing a circle let the hairs twist up and it will flow along nice, i really like to use my other hand to keep my brush hand nice and steady. soon enough you can use it to get fine lines as your mack 00, the panel i did with the volksrods decal in the middle was done with the brush you have as too was the outlining of the flames on walts and happy hoppy's piece, then also on my bug i used it to do the fat lines around my flames, by laying it down more

It might help if the paint is just a touch wetter than you would use
with a striping brush.

Like Pete says,scrape the excess off on the edge of the paint cup,
and away you go.
