How do you get that perfect, skinny lined, drizzle over your chocolate covered strawberries? Are there any tools that you use?

When I did my strawberries, I found that the line I got even when snipping a pastry bag as small as possible, wasn't as fine as I wanted.  And using a #1 tip didn't work.  So I made a parchment cornet following the steps in this youtube video and it worked great!

I drizzled on some cake balls using melted chocolate in a piping bag...you can see them on this thread: http://cakecentral.com/t/746715/for-avid-cake-ball-and-cake-pop-makers
 
I found the best way was to place a ball down on parchment paper, and drizzle very quickly, with one hand, back and forth, so the actual lines extended past the ball, on both sides...
 
I hope that makes sense.
 
I found it easier to do that, than to try to pipe lines carefully onto just the ball.
 
You could definitely line up a couple of strawberries, and do the same thing.
 
Also, here's a video I found after making mine...I'll definitely do my next ones on sticks, like this.
It would also work with strawberries, maybe using a toothpick to hold them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCQVBW0r-6s&list=FLvqSeA2gndSBdejDCBmKpPg&index=3

I use a squeeze bottle filled with melted chocolate.  Then I can set it down if I need to and not have chocolate gush out of a piping bag
