Whiskers

No not the cat! How do I make whiskers? Like a scruffy neck or arm? Just like little black specks.

Easiest way to achieve what (I think) you are looking for would be mask off areas you don't want 'whiskered' and then use an old toothbrush to 'splatter'/spray a mix of acetone and idye poly black powder. You could also use a tiny detailing/lining brush to simply paint on individual specs. Or you could try a traditional stencil dip using vinyl with a million little holes poked through it with a pin.

Just like you don't need a new thread for each dye, you don't need to make a new thread for every question, just post it in the Noobie Dye Question thread.

I think the pinholes/vinyl option is your best bet - more control than a splatter and easier to get small dots than using a brush.
