Today I tried carving some small circles to use to make the billion dots in the sugar glider-creature's design. I also (from a suggestion by Leann) tried making teensy stencils by using a paper punch and the stiff part of a self-laminating pouch.
Tonight I tried them out...as well as a flat rounded sponge brush, and the eraser end of a pencil.
|not this either|
What I ended up using was a broken in half cotton swab.
Tomorrow I will go back in and tidy up some of the rougher dots. And so begins the journey of adding bout fifty billion dots to this painted plaster cloth surface!
