Flat Shader

Flat Shaders are medium in length compared to shorter length chisel blenders and strokes which are longer
Use on the flat side for filling in areas of color or chiseled edge for creating thin lines.


Filbert

Similar to a Flat Shader with a rounded versus a straight across tip, for creating soft edges like a rose petal


Angular Shader

Blending in tight areas, creates crisp edges and precise control, can also make lines


Wash/Glaze

Broad strokes, base coating, applying color to larger areas like backgrounds


Chisel Blender

Short controlled strokes, more precise placement of color than a Shader, recommended for detail work


Mottler/Bristle Bright

Hold large amounts of paint, cover large surface areas, commonly used for murals and washes


Stroke

Longer hair length than a Wash and Shader. For lettering or covering large areas, holds the most color, can be held perpendicular to the surface to make lines
