Drybrushing is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Use a medium sized
brush. Pick up some paint (a lighter shade of the base color), and rub most
of it off on a paper towel, so that you have to rub pretty hard to get any
color on the towel. Then just brush it onto the edges and raised details of
the part. The raised parts will pick up some of the paint, which brings
out the details. Practice on some stuff you don't care about (not
necessarily model parts, coke bottle tops or anything with raised details
will work, even the numbers on the parts runners). Good luck!
