Micro Brush for Paint Chip Repair

Hi, could someone please recommend a website that sells basic micro-brushes to apply paint? I am looking for a standard reusuable brush bristle not the disposable ones. Couldn't find anything doing a Google search. Thanks.

art supply store

I don't have a web site, but my local artist supply store sells great little brushes you rinse out after placing a tiny little dab of paint in the chip crater.

Yep, artist supply store. You'll find enough variety of tiny tip brushes to become totally overwhelmed.

I've seen brushes for photo retouching that had as few as 2-3 bristles. Is that what you're talking about? They would be called #000 or #0000 in size.

string

I cut an inch long piece of string (I have some stiff cotton stuff) and use it to dab and then discard. works fine and no messy clean up.

John in San Antonio

PS - I found that Testors Silver enamel model paint is as close to an exact match for my Astral Silver coupe as I've seen. Cheap.

I've used other model paints to mix and match colors to fix dash blemishes, etc.
