Not quite a brush. Not quite a palette knife. It's the best of both worlds!
Designed for use with heavy body paints, catalyst blades and wedges are at home with oils, acrylics, and water-miscible oil paints. The blades and wedges are heat-resistant to 450 degrees fahrenheit making them perfect for encaustics. They are also great for plaster, clay and even food decorating!
Cleaning them is a breeze. The silicone blades and wedges are solvent resistant and clean up in most cases can be easily accomplished with just soap and water. Dried paint can peels right off the silicone surface. The blades can even be separated from their handles for cleaning in the dishwasher and then reattached when clean.
