Also has more harmful contents, as in lead and toxic pigments so DON'T put the brush in your mouth to get a sharper point! Speaking of brushes, the "dagger striper" style of brush previously described is what the pros use for creating lines, whether pinstripes, lining lugs or borders on signs. But the pros are good because they are, you still need skill and PRACTICE before you can match their results. But they also are very fast, amateurs can go as slow as they want. I have tried the Buegler roller tool as well as the dagger brushes and both have their uses, but I like the suggestion of the ruling pen for lug lining: it just might be

the ideal tool for this speciality. You've got to thin the paint to flow

like ink, but then it should be very controllable when used against an edge like a bike lug, and a very consistant line weight. Alan Goldsworthy San Francisco, CA
