Fossa low tack fie line masking tape

Been using this tape on my current job and it's superb, usually would use Tesa pink.

At half the price I'm chuffed.

Pffft :mrgreen: I have learned to cut in just by hand. Perfect lines when I have not got my spectacles [which rhyme with _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ] on. Plenty of practice for dry cutting-in in the bathroom with new brushes helps a lot. Tip of the day, you must always try new brushes against your lips first.

PS. Them two left us alone to ::b

It's some next level stuff mate :lol:

I look at it like a precision tool that produces another level of finish.

Happy with my cutting in but I'm not as good as "Fossa fine line"

Which is why I started chatted about dry cutting-in in the bathroom to practice with new brushes :lol:

Yes well played.

What's your favourite chin teasing brush and how much pressure do you recommend?...

I've always fancied my cats tail as a dust brush.

I don't think the mother or her son would like me to use their tails as dust brushes. And both (the mother certainly) has a shorter tail due to some genetic defect. They much prefer to stick their hair on me which then I put on everything I pass by.

On brushes, chin does not work for me as I got a beard, that is why I go for the lips. Oval Picassos had a nice contrast with my complexion, and lots of hair (bristles) to match my head. Good on paint too (the one time I used one in anger). Wooster silvertips (I remember silvertip not sure if they were wooster) were nice on the lips but too soft for my liking in paint. They would only be good for people who add some paint in their water (TM Dynamod's grandad).

As an afterthought, :idea1: maybe we should go in this thread and have a collective head scratching. My chemistry knowledge sucks but I could look at photos, esp. close ups.
