A ridiculous tip I stumbled upon....but it works so I'll share it.

the hubs was throwing out coffee filters that didnt fit right So I snagged them.

this am while painting eyes I realized that paper towels that I use to tone down the paint on the brush prior to china painting eyes has fuzzies on it and its annoying, a little fuzzy can ruin and eye.

So I started using the coffee filters....


I know it sounds nuts, but try it...No fuzzies and much more pleasant to work with than paper towels.

Hey Dilu....if it works it works!  No matter how crazy.  I often use the back side of my hand when doing small hand painting jobs bear_whistle  bear_whistle

That's so funny Judi,  we do the exact same thing and the back of my hand doesn't cost me anything either  :crackup:  :crackup: .  Great tip though I wouldn't have thought of coffee filters.
