	I have a friend who scrapes the pollen off with his fingernail, then
dribbles it onto the stigmatic lip.  He uses saliva to wash in between. 
Works for him, he gets a lot of crosses this way.
	Myself, I use a pair of locking tweezers and pluck the anther, the
tweezers are then used to swipe the pollen onto the stigmatic lip.  Nice
part here is no pollen to clean off the tool.
