If you want to change the look and feel of your house cost-effectively, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. However, walls are not the only surfaces that can be painted. You can also paint cabinets, fences, swing sets, crown molding, and even create art with a paintbrush. In this article, you will learn about the seven major types of paintbrushes.
Wash Paint Brushes
Regarding DIY paint projects, acrylic brushes are the most commonly used ones. These brushes are designed with medium-long bristles and feature a flat shape with a squared-off end. They are specifically designed to offer maximum coverage and apply paint smoothly, making them perfect for varnishing tasks.
Flat Paint Brushes
A flat brush is a smaller variant of a wash brush. The brush is still flat, but its ends are slightly curved instead of squared off. Compared to the wash brush, the flat brush is less thick, which means that the wash brush can hold more paint and provide better coverage. Therefore, the flat brush suits smaller work surfaces that must be quickly covered.
Angled Paint Brushes
This brush features a unique design with an angled or slanted tip, comprising shorter bristles at one end and longer bristles at the other while still laying flat overall. Its innovative design makes it ideal for filling corners and creating curved lines with precision and ease.
Did you know that a round brush is like a pen or pencil in painting? It has a pointed tip that allows you to create thin or thick lines and comes in different sizes. This paintbrush can be an excellent tool for artists who want to achieve other effects with their artwork.
A type of brush commonly called a rigger brush is characterized by its long and thin shape. The tip of the brush can be flat, square, or pointed. This particular type of brush is typically used for creating light and precise lines with great control and accuracy.
