Best Brushes for Fabric Painting - Decorative Painting, Ceramics, Fabric Painting, Crafts
Fabric painting brushes need to be stiffer so you can press the paint into the fabric. Fabric paints have to be pressed down into the fabric as they are painted on. If you just lay a bead or layer on the surface, it will not grip the fibers and therefore will flake or chip off.
Silk Brushes compare to Fabric Brushes Silk brushes are soft and soak up large amounts of dye. They are used for filling in areas and watercolour painting. Fabric brushes are stiffer than silk brushes, which helps to force paint or dye into the weave of fabric.
Round Tip Brushes. Use on point or apply pressure to make thick-to-thin strokes. Detail work or filling large areas depending upon the size and pressure applied.
Tiny Round Tip Brushes. Also called Spotter, they are designed for detailing. Great for letters, eyes, eyelashes to name a few.
Flat Tip Brushes. Also called Shader, used for blocking in colour, blending, shading, stroke work and highlighting.
Liner Brushes. Best used for lines and curves, also can change thickness with pressure.
Sumi Brushes. Used for silk painting and calligraphy. They become stiffer in the center allowing more liquid to be soaked in. Traditional brushes used in China.
Chinese Wash Brushes. Used for large broad sweeping strokes.
Foam Brushes. Wooden handled foam brushes are great for applying dyes, dye fixatives, primers or thin paints in large washes. They are also good applying dye to tie-dye instead of squirt bottles.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers. I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much. I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies. We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary. You have made our lives so much simpler. I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends.
Thank you again.
I will be back.

Thanks very much Bob, the parcel arrived last Monday and the paintings are already hanging on the wall. I appreciate your excellent service.
I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!
I hope I’ll be able to broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J
