Brushes & Knives

Brushes are possibly the most important investment an artist can make, because the quality of the brush used has almost as much power to damage or beautify a work as the orchestrating artist. When making an initial investment in brushes it’s wise to choose a set. Having several varied sizes and shapes of brushes provides the artist with as many options as possible to create the vision within his/her mind’s eye.

Brushes are numbered in size ranging from multiple zero which contain very little hair to double digits containing small fistfuls.

Unfortunately, there is little consistency between brush manufacturers as to what these sizes are, so a number 10 in one brand can be a different size to a number 10 in another brand.
