Palette knives give you a means of painting with a thicker layer of paint. Applying paint with a palette knife instead of a brush allows you to apply colours onto the surface of your artwork in a way which brings a new level of texture. This fun, immediate, and highly expressive way of creative texture and adding colour can open up new avenues of creativity as you explore what you can do with it.
A Great Artist's Tool
It is not just for textural detail that the palette knife is very useful. With your palette knife from this collection, you can cover the surface much more swiftly than it would be possible to do with a brush in hand. This means that, when you are looking to apply a wide sweep of colour across a blank canvas, a wider shaped palette knife will get you there surprisingly quickly, and it will create a visually interesting layer at the same time.
Plus, when you have finished using your palette knife, you will find that is really easy to clean. It really is a tool which is made for enjoyment. It is used in an intuitive and free way, as you can sweep paint onto the canvas in one smooth motion, and you don't have to spend as much time cleaning it as you would a brush: so it is definitely a win-win!
