What does flat paint brush do?Nov. 07, 2017
The flat shape is considered a basic, all-purpose shape and includes several varieties, such as the glaze/wash, flat, chisel blender, filbert and angular shader. Flat paint brushes with a quality blend of filaments help to ensure paint, water and media distribute evenly through the brushes and are released as desired.
The use of a flat varies depending on hair type; however, flats will generally work for undercoating/basecoats, strokes, blending, floating, shading and highlighting. Although each of these flat brush styles can achieve similar results, the shape of the brush and hair blend are designed for specific techniques.
