What is the best type of acrylic brush for beginners to use?

Karen Hodges: Acrylic systems are so well researched and designed these days that my best advice would be to use the entire system, as designed, by the manufacturer. Each product works best with a certain liquid-to-powder ratio. All the product manufacturers that I have worked with have designed their own brushes in the shape and size that delivers the proper amount of liquid at the correct time. They have determined the amount of “belly” in the brush, the shape and length of the “flags” (ends) of the brush, and the stiffness of the bristles that will best work with their products, using their instructions for picking up and placing the ball of product. Why reinvent the wheel – especially if you are new and trying to master a new technique? It is always best to follow, as exactly as possible, each step that is recommended.
