Super fine detail tips for FX Goop

Postby alkonite » Wed Dec 09, 2009 4:40 pm

I have a possible aid in making adaptors for Patti-Goop Detail-Goop bottles. Testors makes polypropylene detail tips for the model glue tubes they sell. They are available through most any hobby suppier. One end is about the size of Patti's Detail-Goop cap tips and it tapers down to a realy fine 1/32 inch tip. These are easily cleanable and re-usable. Or you can just dispose after use as they are rather cheap. They could be made to fit with other goop bottle caps and detail tips or Goop FX tubes with tape or other means to make them the right size.

Great idea, thanks! Btw, I did a search for "detail tips" and found some even better bargains on them. Haven't ordered any yet, but thought I'd pass the info along.

I was just brainstorming, and found that they sell syringes with fine tips, even some with curved fine tips! Thinking we could just use normal goop, as little at a time as necessary! :D

Further brainstorming: :idea: I found a fine-tipped, curved glass eyedropper in MaoMart [a.k.a. WalMart] for around $1.50! Looks ideal for detailing molds with normal Goop.
