Hey Tony,
I did a paw print on a mate, I used a 5rl & did the fill with a 7mag...he wanted it real dark, that's why i lined it first,but if you want a realistic paw print,don't line it,put the transfer on & just fill with shade,darker in the centre & fade out to the edges....hope this helps :icon_wink:

Cheers mark, think she wants it dark as well, she wants it on her feet, one print on each foot, you ever done feet? . Bet it will hurt lol

I did a scan of the dogs paws was the easy option, its a yorkie dog so prints not that big, would you still use a 7 flat for this size?

Hey Tony,
yeah,i have done feet,stings a bit.....just use whatever needles you feel comfy with mate.....just remember,you wouldn't paint a ceiling with a one inch brush !!!!,
if you want soft shade,use mags...if you want a solid fill & are used to using rounds then use rounds,its what ever you feel comfy with.....:icon_wink:
