Saw this on a tutorial video an decided o give it a try. So far I have only used it to put gesso on projects and it is wonderful. It spreads so smoothly and you use all the paint. It's easier to clean than a brush also.
I scrapbook and art journal. I use my silicone brush for art journaling. It's great for spreading mixed media. So far I only used for gesso and gel medium. I think it should be good for texture paste also especially with stenciling on scrapbook lo.
This little brush is perfect. I use it to apply gesso, gel medium, etc. I love the size, flexibility and it is so easy to clean. I also have the larger silicone brush, but this 1 inch size is my new favorite tool!
i was happy with how this item works. it spreads paint and gel easily , the handle is comfortable to hold. BUT I found that my gel stuck to the silicone blade more than i expected, and when trying to wipe it off with a damp rag it started to pull the silicone head sideways out of the metal ferrule. I was afraid it was going to tear the silicone where the nails go through the metal so I stopped. and thus render this tool unusable in future.
I bought three of these in the same size as their price was good, but i noticed that two of the blades looked like they were cut slightly askew and one had a flaw in it's front surface. I was concerned that it would affect how well or smoothly the blade would apply any mediums. It wasn't noticeable but i wasn't aiming for super smooth at that time. I think this tool is ok for scooping product out of containers but for smoothing large areas i would choose another tool .
