All ABOUT Paint brushes
How do paint brush sizes work?
Brushes are given numbered sized, but there is no standard for their dimensions. From smallest to largest, the sizes are:
- 20/0, 12/0, 10/0, 7/0, 6/0, 5/0, 4/0 (also written 0000), 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 30.
- Sizes 000 to 20 are most common.
- Brushes as fine as 30/0 are manufactured by major companies, but are not a common size. Read more
Yes. You can use makeup brushes for painting. As long as the brushes have synthetic bristles, makeup brushes and painting brushes are interchangeable.
Soft bristles make smooth paint strokes. For blended, flat paint surfaces, mongoose, sable, or soft synthetic brushes are ideal. The consistency of the paint needs to be rather fluid for these brushes, as they don’t have the strength to apply heavy body paint.
Synthetic paintbrushes are ideal for acrylic paints. When using natural-hair brushes on acrylic, making sure that they’ve been cleaned of any oils or turpentine, and be sure to clean the brushes quickly after each use.
- Use a quality brush
- Get the right amount of paint on the brush
- Don’t apply too much pressure to the brush
- Leave end strokes in the same direction
- Use a roller or spray gun instead
Technically, yes, you can use watercolours with acrylic brushes, but exercise caution with using watercolour brushes with acrylics. Acrylic paint is harsher on a paintbrush than watercolours, so they shouldn’t be used on natural hair paint brushes.
