[rp-ml] ZCorp Color Minimums

Can anyone tell me if ZCorp's color process (the plaster based powder
infiltrated with glue) can handle a colored "line" with 1mm diameter
colored rods on it's surface?

I've gotten 2mm diameter lines (in the form of rods) that look great but
I'd like to slim the colored portions (the rods) on the surface down to
1mm. Alternatively is there a way to do away with the geometry
altogether and simply have the color ""follow" a line on the surface?

I seem to recall someone wanting 2mm minimum diameter rod but wanted to
check as this would save me some modeling time in addition to possibly
looking better.

Finally. Are there other color processes similar to this one?
