How It’s Used: The detailer brush can be used for intricate work and is especially suited to drawing delicate flowers. Flower petals can easily be painted by placing the brush flat and lifting it straight up.
How It’s Used: Efficient for elongated lines, the striper brush creates long vertical or horizontal lines. Whether a thin or thick line is desired, the width is determined by the amount of paint on the bristles.
