What are painting knives used for?
If you are trying to create textures or designs with a paintbrush and you are not getting the results you would like, you may want to try out painting with a knife. Painting knives are fairly inexpensive and they work on both oil and acrylic paints.


Painting Knives

Painting with a knife produces much different results than painting with a paintbrush. As far as art supplies go, they are a relatively inexpensive, useful and versatile tool that can be used for both acrylic and oil painting. They are great for producing texture and for laying down wide areas of flat color. Any fine art supply store, discount or otherwise will carry these palette knives or painting knives.
