Stencil brushes are actually specially designed for stenciling. A stencil brush looks like a regular round brush, but unlike other brushes, it has a flat top which makes it perfect for dabbing and swirling the paint over the stencil without getting the paint to seep underneath. If you try stenciling with your regular watercolor artist brush, or a painter’s chip brush you’ll get a very messy result, due to the wrong shape of the brush. The flat top of the stencil brush is the key to your stenciling project. Stencil brushes for wall painting and furniture stenciling projects.
A good stencil brush is soft, flexible but densely packed, has natural bristles, minimal shedding. When you buy a new stencil brush, test how flexible it is. Bristles should not be too stiff. A good flexible stencil brush will give you beautiful soft shading and blending of colors similar to the airbrush effect.
