I’m one of those artists who just prefers brushes to sponges. I like the amount of control I get, and I especially like the ability to rinse and change colors without accumulating a pile of dirty sponges. SO, for years I’ve been using wide, 2″ brushes to match the width of my large rainbow cakes.
Recently someone on Facebook posted the question of what kind of brush to use on a large TAG split cake. Nearly everyone’s answer was some variation of: “a sponge.” I think sometimes we get in such a rut with our products, we tend to overlook some other methods that have been right under our noses the entire time! I like to work under the belief that there is never just one way to do things. Try out your ideas…sure, you may find the way you did it was the best way all long, but the process of being creative with your tools just leads to more ideas, and often times more efficient ways to do things! So experiment, have fun, and find your OWN way of doing things!
Ever since I posted this new 2″ brush I’m now carrying in my store, I’ve been getting a ton of requests for a video of it in use. SO, while I didn’t think I’d get the time until after my trip to Belgium, I decided to set aside this afternoon to film, edit, and publish this video so you don’t all have to wait for answers!! If you still have questions, please feel free to email me and I’ll do my best to answer.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy painting!!
