Kirk,

The “good aspects” of triangular cosmetic sponges as paint daubers are many.
Convenient size and shape, plus of course one can trim them. Near-ideal texture,
as far as I can see; they hold “just enough” paint and deliver it in a
controllable manner.

Widely available: Pharmacies, Beauty Supply, and Department Stores sell them by
the bag full, which is a lifetime supply for most of us.  ( Share it with SWMBO?
)

There’s no “prep time” for the applicator itself; they are ready to work right
as they come from the bag.

Marc mentioned POSCA Paint Markers.

They look to be even easier to use than my favored Cosmetic Sponges!
