Hello, I've had luck using a Rapido-Graph (brand name) type ink pen. These are the pens used for ink drafting before CAD took over and they are available at most art stores. The trick is getting the paint at the right consistancy plus having a steady hand but it is easier than a brush. Brian Baylis helped me find out this idea.

Have fun,
