    A rookie question - I've used mostly just round brushes. Anybody use flats or any of the others?

    All the best,

    I have used various sizes if all of the above for applying ink glazes on acrylics and for blending and removing excess oil paint. But I work in large scales.

    I like Rosemary & Co filberts for doing scrub coats with oils. I find them better than flats for getting into all those nooks and crannies. I also like the angled brushes for stippling between colours to get a nice smooth blended area. But, most of the time, I stick with rounds; I probably use one brush for about 90% of my painting - W&N Series 7, size #1.

    I tend to use rounds, when painting the Verlinden way I used the flats to pull the paint off.

    I use rounds always, less for bigs surfaces, then one like the first of your photo. And when i try to paint something with oils, to remove the excess too.

    You may have answered your own question! with your picture. 'A selection of all', will cover all of your necessary requirements.

    Each of the portrayed brushes have their strength and purpose, its up to you to navigate each one. Which will be dependant upon the scale of the piece on your bench.

    Personally. I was a 'Flat & Rigger', man but used all types when situations arose.

    Grab the lot and have done with it. :D


    Regards,

    Mark.

    All the best,

    Then! as said, it was the Flat & Rigger, with a touch of 'Round', capped with a fine 'Mop'.

    This is where, 'Kagemusha' ( Ron Clark ), highlighted the advantage of ladies, 'Make-up', brushes which can play their part.;)
