  5. Define the foreground color.
  6. Open the "Paths" dialog and apply the "Stroke Path" command.
  7. In the dialog box that opens, choose your painting tool (the same as chosen in step 3).
  8. Optionally, you may activate the "Simulate Pressure" option that dynamically changes the stroke width (screenshot).
