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 can see them on this thread:
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:

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
