Applying weld beads

I'm sure this question has been asked in the dim past, but...does anyone have a preferred way of applying putty (or a different material) to create weld beads, especially around handles, tank armour plates or anywhere where a bead might be nice to see. I know Archer Fine Details do resin weld beads, but I didn't think they would be thick enough to create a convincing-looking bead. I realise that for many parts of a 1/35 (which is the preferred scale) a weld bead may just not be seen, but knowing that there is a way of doing it would be extremely helpful.
