    Dip a cotton bud into some vodka (or gin/brandy/scotch etc) and just dab each 'shell' with it, should do the trick.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    A stencil type brush and methylated spirit.  Unless your rich, then alcohol would do.

    Stiff brushes used for acrylics are best, especially the cheapo ones.
