I am absolutely addicted to the fineline applicator. Why? Because it lets me write on just about anything in any color I want. The way the tip is designed, it doesn’t clog which is critical for me because I am not willing to clean. Not one of these has clogged on me yet. Beth Figiel left a comment on the blog asking me to explain more about these little bottles so I created this video.

When you buy it, it arrives empty and you fill it up with any runny color you want. I fill mine with either acrylic inks or high flow paint. The rule I follow is if it will come out the tip then it is a good paint for the fineliner.
No matter how rough a surface, I can write on it with one of these. A felt tip pen would get roughed up writing on this surface and a ball point pen will jump and skip on all this texture.
How hard you squeeze determines how much comes out the tip. There are 2 sizes of the bottles, and I prefer the finest size because it can give me the thinnest line.
This is my go to way to write on wet paint because I don’t always want to wait for paint to dry and I don’t want to ruin a traditional pen. I know, you’re shocked that I haven’t learned to be patient and wait for things to dry!
