Yes, this is one of the reasons i like these little tips... the line
is tiny, but still round, so it isn't quite so snippy as with a cone.
I'm sure i've said before that the most versatile line for my work is
a round one. Chisel point, i can use for some things, but i really
need a nice predictable round line to do my best work.

Re: final seal- the one time i used it, i found it to do very little,
if anything at all... it was a humid day, do you think that had
anything to do with it?
I've not been sealing my paste at all lately, rather i've been adding
tons of sugar, and the paste positively *clings* to the skin. It's a
real pain to scrape off! I did find though that honey mixed with
water and used in place of lemon/sugar makes a nearly *impenetrable*
seal over the henna. I have slept with a design in place under the
honey solution, no wraps, and it was very nearly intact in the
morning, with minimal cracking or flaking.
