1. Bamboo Pen-not easy to draw the finer lines but gave me better results for the overall flower head size.
3. Balsa Wood Skewer-Uniform lines but terrible flower head. This tool would be useful for doing smaller fence posts.
4. My favorite-the Dip Pen-this gave me the best control of all the tools. If I had a larger nib the results would have been better, but for doing detail work, this is the tool to use.
My observations: I would use the Dip Pen to do finer detail in any type of painting that required such detail, but I would combine this with the bamboo pen when actually creating the flower head. This might also work good for the seed head of a Sunflower. Something to try at another time.
