The brush will be a big factor when executing your painting by numbers, the correct use and choice will guarantee the quality and beauty of your final art.

In this article you will find some tips on how to use the brush correctly and which is the best for your painting by numbers.

1. Right brush for the right area

The DIY number painting kits come with three different brush sizes: small, medium and large. These three brushes will meet the basic needs of your painting by number. The small brush is ideal for crunchy touches, the medium brush gives sharpness to your image, while the large brush is ideal for large areas.

Each brush has its fundamental role at the time of painting, for example, the small brush is not suitable for large pieces, as it will take time and agitation to use it. In addition, the use of the large brush on small parts can easily spill paint on adjacent parts, which can bring an unpleasant result.

2. Don't let your brush dry

While painting, try to keep the brush moist; with moderation. The ideal is to have a small glass of water and some paper towels as you paint from time to time, just dip the brush in the water and dry with the towel. Or use just a damp piece of cloth to remove paint residue from the brush.



3. Keep the brush clean

It is very important to completely clean the brushes when changing the paint color. It is extremely important to do the proper cleaning because the last thing you want is to accidentally mix colors in any part of your image.

The paint usually dries quickly and can easily damage the brush if you forget to clean it. Therefore, when you are finished painting, clean the brushes before storing them.



4. You should feel comfortable with the brushes

When you finish buying a new painting kit on canvas, it takes some time to get used to the new brushes. If you have brushes you're used to, you can use them. However, if this is your first time using brushes, try to feel comfortable with them, and they will be easier to use the more you paint.
