A sharpened toothpick can get really small for some detail painting

Paint a base color then top color then wipe carefully.  Or you can apply accent paint to low areas only and wipe off high spots

These are a great set, $$ but quality. I've had mine for 5 or 6 years now, lost 1 cap and they get used with lacquer, enamels, and acrylics.

Nice set of brushes although I really like the Back to Base-ix brushes.  They are a really quality brush for the money.  Im looking at buying a set of these brushes you mentioned as well for weathering.

There's also several sizes of little fuzzy things - microbrushes.

Has anyone tried any of these brushes? http://www.micromark...ushes,9628.html

I'm intrigued by the size, but I'd like to know how well they actually work.
