As soon as I started to work with this brush I realized I am going back and getting a couple of different sizes to keep in my arsenal. This brush hands work at pushing and maneuvering paint. I also use it to work with gesso and gel medium. Great assistant and extremely easy to keep clean. Love it.
I have been exploring the addition of cold wax medium (CWM) to my oil paint. This tool offers a medium firm silicone blade to work the paint. It can be used to apply and also to scrape workable oil paint, CWM, to blend oil based R&F pigment sticks, for creating texture and mark making. Clean up is simple with baby wipes, vegetable oil, or, odorless minerals spirits...I prefer Gamblin brand.
This brush is my “Go to” tool for Art Journaling. I use this tool every day. It hands out in my studio on my workbench and never gets put away. I use it to spread matte medium on my substrate and I use it to smooth the papers when I am collaging. I don’t know how I ever did without it. Washes easily.
I had no difficulties with the silicone blade. The problem I had was with the construction. There are only two and not three rivets--so they didn't hold up as supplemental shapers. The company quickly refunded my money. I hope they change the manufacturing process because there's a need for these.
Unlike the 5 piece set, that I gave a 1 star rating to, I’m giving this 5 stars. It is stiff and moves acrylic paint. You can use the flat side for wide lines or removing paint so you get a beautiful rough layer of paint underneath or the edge for thin lines to have a slightly different layering effect.
I love this, I use it to apply many types of adhering substances: Mod-Podge, Yes-Paste, & Matte Medium as well as gesso. It applies all in a smooth manner, no brush strokes and when the medium dries on the applicator, it peels right off!
