Made of pure bristle the No.8 is a great brush for detail work and using with smaller stencils.
We have worked hand in hand with a British company that has over 30 years experience in the brush manufacturing business to produce a stencil brush exclusive to Dovetails.
We found that conventional ‘flat headed’ stencil brushes just didn’t reach the surface when using our thicker, quality stencils. So our new brushes have a slight curve to the head which allows the brush and the paint to reach the surface, even in the smallest areas, without bleeding under the stencil. This allows for a much crisper image when stencilling. We love them!
For best results never overload the brush with paint, we like to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – but make sure it’s not too runny – allowing air to get to the paint thickens it up, which is ideal.
You only need a very small amount of paint on the end of the brush. Work off any excess paint on a spare piece of card or cloth.
To get the paint on we find a dabbing motion with the brush at a 90 degree angle to the surface works well – like a little woodpecker!
