MG Sinanju - How to use Gundam markers for the detailling

Originally uploaded by Busterbeam

This is essentially the technique that I settled on and this is almost EXACTLY how I'm doing it. A couple of differences is that I don't paint directly on the part with the marker. I put some of the paint out and then paint it by hand with a fine brush. I'm just a bit worried about spillage but... I suppose this technique would work too. I scrape off the excess with a knife as shown here and I also use my Gundam Pen to do a bit of re colouring on the edges and grooves. I don't use the Real Touch one as is shown here. I want something a bit more precise. I don't have a black Real Touch marker otherwise I might give it a shot.
