Fineline Applicators!

Recently, I've been sent a set of Fineline applicators to play with. The person who developed these applicators, David Ford, had generously sent me some of his products to experiment and play with.

There are various different types of applicators that he had sent me.

First of all, is the Fineline Needle Applicator. These are stainless steel applicators that use the FL air-tight non-clogging cap wire closure system to insure that the applicator and your medium in it are always ready for immediate use. They are available in two sizes of dispensing needles: 18 gauge (.8mm) and 20 gauge (.5mm) and come standard with a refillable 1.25 oz 18/410 bottle.

Secondly is the Fineline Convertible Applicator. This Applicator offers three removable and interchangeable stainless steel dispensing tips: 18 gauge, 20 gauge and 21 gauge.

Thirdly is the Fineline Resist Pen. This is an applicator for liquid latex resist (masking fluid). The 18 gauge (0.8mm) stainless steel tip allows the user to precisely apply the resist fluid on a variety of surfaces such as paper, canvas, ceramics, glass, metal, finished wood, gourds and plastics. The FL non-clogging cap wire closure system maintains an air tight seal to prevent the resist from evaporating or drying out in the bottle.

David also sent me the newly improved Masquepen. It is now in available in these amazing Fineline applicators which won't clog anymore! I've done some projects using Masquepen before in the past. Here are some links to it.

I've done some video tutorial involving these fun Fineline Applicators. Will share them here soon. Keep an eye for them!

A Cute Wink

This week's picture on Hiro is a picture where he is doing a fast wink. The shot is not fast enough, therefore we only manage to capture a slight closure of the left eye. Well, I guess there will always be another time for a "wink" shot...LOL! Have a great weekend!
