Re: Painting whisker couplers

KISS. Pick up coupler by the shank in left hand, pick up brush in right hand, dip tip of brush into paint, and apply. Two nanoseconds. No masking is required, and by the time the spray booth would have been otherwise set up, etc. etc., or the worries about bending the whiskers would have been rationalized, the average modeler will have had all of his couplers already painted, and will have moved on to more interesting things (:-).

Now, this does require some skill and judgment to not gum up the works with thick paint, but in this community of pretty dedicated kit builders and operators, I presume that such manual efforts would not be scorned.
