Hello All,
I know some people think my Deetail Patti-goop was expensive because it was only 1/2 oz., but I made a discovery today, and boy do I feel dumb. The manufacturer of my bottles call them a half ounce squeeze bottle, but when I measured them today with water, they are actually 3/4 of an ounce!

I also gather from some of the comments that the detail tip isn't the greatest either. I agree, but it is very difficult to find the right bottle with a detail tip that you can fill yourself. I will work on this. I usually apply mine with a detail paint brush or with a toothpick. I squeeze out a dot of different colors like a painter does on his palette, and dip into them with a toothpick. On Tarzan's eyes I even used a pin.

The good news is...I do have white!

I'm so sorry I haven't been writing regularly on this forum. I moved in February and it has been a crazy year. Still painting and unpacking.

What colors or types of GOOP FX do you want to see come out? pastels? glitters? more shimmers? earth tones?

thanks so much!
Patty

For fine work try Testors Detail Glue tips they make for model glue tubes. These are polypropylene add-on adaptors that reduce the size of the tip to about a 1/32. They should fit over the Patti Goop Detail bottles tips and are re-usable and cleanable. They are rather cheap and available at most hobby shops.
