Fan brushes are excellent for painting a wash of color over a large area. The Large Fan Brush is particularly well suited for washing bands of color onto a plate or for other large areas. This brush has a thick amount of bristles for holding extra paint so you can quickly and easily paint a large surface.
Studio Large Fan Brushes are the same brushes we use in the studio. These brushes have been gently used in the studio. They will be cleaned and dissinfected but you may still see some signs of wear on them. You are purchasing these brushes so there is no need to worry about returning them. All Pottery To Go Kits inlcude a disposable brush, but this brush is intended to give more options to the discerning artist.
How to make a wash of color: Add a little bit of water at a time to your paint to thin it out to a thin soup consistency. Then apply one to two coats of the wash to your surface with a fan brush. Be intentional about your brush stroke directions (usually around in a circle or straight up and down) as you will see them since there are only two thin coats of paint on the surface. (It takes three coats to make a solid color.)
