Magnets can also make useful clamps, where ordinary clamps cannot reach. I used them a lot building a suit of stormtrooper armor.

How can I paint really tiny stars?

I am painting a 1/25th scale Wonder Woman, and I need to paint her star-spangled fanny. Does anyone have any ideas for how I might paint stars that small?
