Fuzzy skin paint tool?

I'm really liking the "fuzzy skin" feature, but I'm finding the "Outside walls or All walls" selection is not flexible enough, i.e., there may be portions of a contiguous surface I want to make fuzzy, but not others. I'm thinking a paint tool that lets me specify what surfaces or portions thereof I want the fuzz effect on would be helpful. Is this doable? I don't see a github topic for this.

There is one.  I remember seeing the request.  https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/issues/6988   search keywords 'paint' & 'fuzzy'

Ah, thanks for the link, not sure how I missed it. I also added this to the github thread:

Thinking about how this might be implemented, "painting", given it's inherent imprecise nature, might not be the way to go. Better, perhaps, would be to implement it as an "Add Modifier" or "Add Part" feature which you could shape and place more precisely and assign the fuzzy attribute to it. I can see this opening up all kinds of possibilities such as uploading a logo/branding file to have it appear as a fuzzy "patch" on an otherwise smooth wall. In that respect, it would also be nice to have the fuzzy attribute available as a top layer fill pattern, with specifiable thickness and point offset as currently available. Maybe this is already available by this method (just thinking out loud here), I'll experiment a little.

You can already use a modifier to add fuzzy skin to a project and control the shape with it, it's been in there since the advent of 2.4.

As for the paint tool it can be very precise, you just have to learn how to use it.

I had no idea that you could do that.  I found this https://forum.prusa3d.com/forum/prusaslicer/fuzzy-skin-modifier/   Is this still the best way?

As far as I know it is, BTW it's not limited to just fuzzy skins, you can use similar methods to adjust many specific properties/parameters.
