What’s your favorite painting tool? Do you stick with paintbrushes? I mean, you can find so very many awesome paintbrushes out there! The materials they use to make the bristles alone can baffle the brain!
Personally, I can’t remember the last time I used a paintbrush, outside of one liner brush I use for tiny details.
Seriously. I think the biggest reason I started using not paintbrushes is that I am way too lazy or in a hurry or whatever. I can’t take a moment away from what I’m painting to wash a brush. I can drop them in a jar of water for later, but then I have to go and clean them up when I have too much paint or mixed colors in the jar. And I have the risk of knocking over the jar of paint-y water and brushes while I’m working. And I have done that. More than once.
So, what do I use, you ask? How do I get paint everywhere??
Here is a quick list of my favorite paint tools, in no particular order:
- My fingers. ‘Nuff said.
- Old credit cards and gift cards.
- Mud knifes from Home Depot.
- Bubble wrap.
- Plastic cling wrap.
- Dry wall joint tape.
- Barbecue sauce bottles.
- Paper towels.
- Spray bottles.
- Eye dropper.
There you go. Outside of these, I use blocks and pens and markers and spray inks and tons of glue. And tape. And stuff.
