Use Pin Heads To Paint Dots

contest winner icon

In many painting and craft projects, one finds themselves needing to make dots. I have used this idea for years and it hasn't failed me once! It's easy and inexpensive. No high tech tool needed.


Take straight pins with different sized heads and some pencils with erasers. Snip half the shaft of pin off and push each into it's own eraser, leaving head of pin raised slightly above eraser. Done! Just dip pin head in paint and dot away. Wipe pin head off when done and when it gets old, just pull it out and replace with another.

You will get so good and fast at this, you will be able to do it with your eyes closed! Happy Dotting!
