If you need a straight edge, use tape(mostly invisible). The decals that lego put on are a tiny bit raised, so when you hit a little higher part, stop! Hope this helps!Swift

I used paint before, but you just have to be very very careful.

Some people use sharpies.

maybe use decals? you can use decals you find on the net, or draw your own in paint! or you can even draw on paper and glue it on your minifig! XD

I don't trust myself with a paintbrush. If you asked me to paint a part of a clone blue, the whole would turn out blue.....

I'm not saying paint is the wrong program, just that there are much better programs, like GIMP, Photoshop, etc.
