I'M ON ADDERALL NOW SO I ACTULLAY FOLLOW THROUGH ON RANDOM CRAP
REMEMBER DRILLING HOLES IN EVER FRAKKING BOLTGUN? REMEMBER HOW YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THAT? DON'T.
Because seriously: I found out that using a micron pen, or any other fountain pen with high quality ink, looks REALLY good. I think it's better looking than actually drilling holes. Plus it's quicker, and way easier. The only drawback is the ink takes forever to soak into paint complete, years in fact. It's good enough after a few days, but I have hyperhydrosis in my hands, so it smears right away for me. The good think is that a little itty bit of varnish, or any sealant permantly fixes it to the model.
I guess black paint'd work too, but it doesn't have the velvety smoothness of ink IMHO. And it's less convenient.
