Trier: I once tried plastic but much to rigid for me. Flimsy is the best... that black handle one is an Italian make .. don't make them any more. I think I paint 50 US for it about 35 years ago. Really really thin. My faves are the long ones with 3rd from the right. I used to paint only with knifes for about 2 years back then. I just started using my knife much more in the six months.
Yup, Arty, a few sessions.
Thanks Patrick. Thanks for the link. I have seen her on my iPad. Yes, very impressive.
Thank you Herme. I've not used one for paint but I have heard. They should work as a large brush as they have a bend.
Thank you Lain. They can be lethal, but they work best with a grntle hand. I have never done one but I assume it would be like putting icing on a cake.
Thanks Joe ... Lain... I must remember to check my spelling .. typos like crazy
I've had this piece or ore for 50 years I am sure .. got it from some auction that was raising money for some good cause .. at least that's what I tell myself .. just love the natural formation of it. If I recall it's iron ore. Heavy thing for a 4 inch rock.
My knives look similar to yours. I like to work with the long thin ones as well, although I've also found the squared off stubby one quite good for marks lately
Trier I can't get in with the plastic ones at all.
Enyaw lovely painting, that blue is really fab
