Lash & Brow Brushes
Lash and Brow Brushes are made with long hair length
to hold enough paint to finish one lid or brow with reloading. Squirrel
hair is extremely supple, and is the choice fiber for brows as it clings
to the curved brow contour, allowing the finest lines to be created on
a non-flat surface.
Lip & Shadow Brushes
Lip and Shading Brushes are designed with short
hair length for greater painting control. Both the Lip Filbert and the
Detail Spotter will hold a tight point, and should be loaded with only
enough paint to retain the point. The Square Shader is designed to be used
as a dry brush to smooth the paint that has been applied with the other
Stipplers serve several purposes for the doll painter.
They are almost always used as a dry brush, although they also make good
applicators to blend media, as well as paint, into crevices when doing
an overall wash. In addition, they make excellent cheek blush applicators.
Stipplers can be used to blend eye lid shadow and feature enhancement around
ear crevices, nostril flares, philtrums, etc.
Mops serve two main functions, and are always used
as a dry brush. Smaller mops are used to gently apply cheek color. Large
mops are used to vigorously blend overall wash. Prior to applying color
to doll surfaces, a light application of media is added by hand. A triangular
cosmetic sponge is useful to apply wash.
