making the glint in an eye or lace.

When I paint an eye I like to put a small dot of white to make it sparkle but brushes even the small ones are so large so I use a long hat pin dip it in a white paint and one dot in the eye gives it that reflection. I also use the hat pin to make small dots as lace around a dress or curtains.

glint in the eye
by: janet whitaker

if you happen to be able to get a needle that is used forgiving shots. 9please use a new needle) but it has a great handle and so easy to use. I keep one in my paint box all the time.
Just maybe your Doctor or Dentest might give you one if he understands what you want it for.

A HAT PIN, WHO HAS ONE???
by: Anonymous

While appreciating the tip, I think the substitution for a needle or straight pin for a hat pin might be more realistic, hat pins are collectors items, and very rare in Canada
