On the Chisel

If you ever hear the word "Chisel" in reference to your paint brush when you are painting, that is the very tip of the bristles. Often when you are doing strokework, you will start on the chisel edge, apply pressure and move the brush in a certain direction. It will then call for you to end back up on the chisel edge. This will allow you to create a very nice crisp stroke.

You can also use the chisel edge of your brush to create a "line stroke". You must keep your brush perpendicular to complete this stroke correctly. You will need to work on applying the correct pressure when doing this stroke. If you push down too much the line will be too fat. If you raise up off the surface too much, then you will have a broken line. Just the right amount of pressure is needed to make a nice thin line.

Always remember, practice makes perfect!
