Hobby Brush 5
Pony HairThere’s a saying…”the right tool for the right job” and this is very true in the modelling world.

This may explain why there are a vast number of specialist tools available, ensuring that you can find the one that you are looking for to make the job easier, or to achieve a better end result.

In choosing the best brush for the task, you need to consider 3 things: the properties of the paint or media (e.g. viscosity), the properties of the surface (e.g absorbency), and the painting technique you are going to use (e.g. stippling).

However, in general terms to achieve a superior finish, you need a higher quality brush made from real hair (e.g. sable).

For tasks where a perfect finish is not paramount (e.g undercoating or basic weathering) a nylon brush would be a good choice.

For applying glue and weathering pigments using a hobby brush would be a prudent choice.

There are hobby brushes of different shapes and sizes.

This one from Javis that are designed for detail work both enamel and acrylic paint.
