In my quest to paint with tiny objects, I had some kids paint with tiny cut up sponges. I cut the sponges into tiny pieces so that the kids would have to use a fine precise grasp.
It worked well, but I used regular kitchen sponges, which squished down too easily between the fingers when picked up. Next time I will use make-up sponges, which are much denser, and I think would make great tools to paint with. You can cut the sponges to any size that you want, in order to achieve the grasp that you are working on.
