The tip I bought from the online source didn't fit the j bottle. But
I used it on Rebecca, my lovely local henna friend, and she HAD to
find one too. She scoured our local Michael's and found a different
tips that produces even finer lines than the one I was using.
The brand is Pebeo and it's a 2 pack of tips that are made for
porcelin painting. They are approximately equivalent to a Jac size 4
and 2 (or smaller, you can't imagine the eeny weeny lines you can get
with this tip).
I used the new tips that night and tried to create the most intricate
lace, as close together as I could. Again, I repeated the motif of
Erfan's original design that morphed into my Persian lace hand
This was the result. While the composition of the design could be
improved, I was astounded by my ability to create eensy eensy lines
alright, and with a jac bottle not a cone.
The trick BTW to the Pebeo tips is to leave the tips on the funky ass
plastic top. The entire top will screw right on to your jac bottle.
Again, the brand is Pebeo, and says something like Procelin 150 on
the package of 2 tips. The 2 pack of tips ran 8 bucks.
