BRUSHES

Everyone has their favorite brushes that work well for them.   I use a variety of brushes depending
on the size of the project I'm working on and what technique I am using. 
The types of brushes you will need to complete any of my project plans and designs:

Brush Flat.GIF (3307 bytes)

* Flat brushes for basecoating and float shading.

Brush Round.GIF (2250 bytes)

* Round brushes for basecoating and some detail.

Brush Liner.GIF (1921 bytes)

* Liner brushes for linework & fine detail.

Brush Angular Shader.GIF (3955 bytes)

* Angular shaders for float shading.

Brush Filbert.GIF (3272 bytes)

* Filbert or Cat's Tongue

*Brush for stippling.  Those old worn out flat brushes
that aren't flat anymore work well for stippling.

Painting on wood is hard on brushes, and you'll need more than just water to clean them up
when using acrylic paints.  A liquid hand soap works well to get the pigment out of the brushes.
There are also numerous brush cleaners on the market.  I have tried several of them and haven't
found one yet that did not get the job done.  At the end of a painting session, I like to condition
my brushes as well using a product called "Artgel" by Winsor & Newton.  Work a little
into the brush, wipe the excess off and reshape it.  Caring for your "tools of the trade" every
time you paint will help extend the life of your brushes.
