A trick for nooks and crannies (I came up with this for doing big scales):  when you apply paint, start from the innermost or deepest part and push it outward.  The instinct (or at least my instinct) was to start on flat areas and then try to push into crevices, and this tended to reveal a lot of white spots as it dried.  By jamming the brush into the crevices when it's loaded and then working out, it mostly solved this problem and saved a lot of time.  This is particularly true if you're workin
