Using My Brushes

Golden Leaf

Gold Leaf brush

This versatile 1" wide brush is probably the best wash brush around. It holds a tremendous amount of paint which means you don't have to reload it too often. Ideal for sky and large washes, it is also great for painting trees, bushes and leaves in the foreground. For best results squeeze excess water out of the brush with your finger and thumb, pick up the paint and then stipple. The resulting texture is similar to that achieved from using a sponge but the brush gives you more control.

 

Step by Step

 

How to use



 Fan Stippler

Fan Stippler brush

A fantastic brush for painting trees - instead of painting with brush strokes, you stipple! The Fan Stippler's unique blend of hair and fine bristle creates a natural looking leaf effect. By lightly stippling you can leave plenty of gaps in the trees or by pushing down harder you get a fuller tree. Don't have the brush too wet.

Step by Step



 Golden Wizard

Golden Wizard brush

This brush has two lengths of natural hair, 20% of which is slightly longer than the rest. The paint is held in the body of the brush and is released through the longer hair which clumps together into small points. This gives the effect of fine lines slightly spaced making it a great brush for painting grasses, fur and hair. It is perfect for blending blending because of the gentle release of paint from the fine points of hair - ideal for painting water and reflections. The ragged end of the brush creates a natural looking jagged outline for trees and hegderows. It really is a magical brush! Also available: Grand Wizard: A wider version.
