Happy Tuesday to you and welcome to another Q-T-T!
Aside from my regular go-to brushes, I also have a variety of artists paint brushes for painting my furniture. Artists paint brushes come in all different shapes and sized and are amazing for faux finishes and fine detailing.
These brushes can neatly and precisely paint in the smallest nooks and crannies of furniture trim, appliques, moulding or fretwork.
In my experience, artists paint brushes are unmatched for faux finishes and getting into tight areas a larger brush simply can’t.
Here’s a perfect example. My last make-over was a mismatched head/foot board that was spray painted. To achieve a subtle highlight effect on on the raised detailing, I used a small artists fan brush with a feather touch.
Perfect faux finish for this dry brushing technique on this beautiful set ~ no mess, no fuss, no waste!
I can’t imagine trying to get this dry brush detailing on the head and foot board even with my smallest Purdy brush. It makes the job so much easier when you have an appropriate sized brush to work with so don’t hesitate to switch brushes!
Do you use different sized artists brushes on your painted furniture? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
