I use ink with pen (0.3) and the syringe for all the spot.
After created the structure (I mean the principale lines that from the center of the cupola go down to the sea) I create the texture, line by line, with pen.
Then I brush with syringe to obtain 2 results: the emphasise outlines and the antique impact.
Quite simple, no? ;)
