  Brush attribute selection

  Pigskin brush is the most suitable brush type for oil painting. It can match the consistency of oil painting and the rough texture of oil painting very well.

  Different shapes of pens can draw different strokes. Flathead pen is the most common one, it can brush quickly and accurately.

  Short flat head oil painting pen

  It is shorter than the long flat brush, and the length and width of the brush head are basically the same. It is used to dip thick paint to draw short and heavy strokes. Short flat brush is easy to draw a relatively monotonous square stroke, so you must be careful when using it.

  Oil painting pen with round head

  The tip of the round brush is round and sharp, which is suitable for drawing thin lines and long strokes with thin paint. Round head brushes are often used to perfect the details of a painting.

  Changping oil brush

  The brush head of long flat brush is square, and the brush is longer than short flat brush. The long flat head brush has strong adsorption capacity for pigments, and is suitable for drawing long strokes or thin lines on the edges of paintings. Long flat brush is most suitable for painting large areas of color, especially for the use of high concentration of pigment.

  Hazelnut oil brush

  Hazelnut brush head is a flat oval, can draw a more round stroke. Its shape determines that it can draw heavy strokes or light strokes. The hazelnut brush is more suitable for mixing colors than the long flat brush.

  Crochet pen

  The hair of the pencil is long and soft. It is usually used to draw light and thin lines, such as branches, boat lines, etc., and also to sign on the painting.

  The best oil painting pen can guarantee the hardness and shape of its strokes for a long time. And relatively low-cost products can maintain the original shape of the strokes in a relatively short period of time.

  A soft brush is a more appropriate choice when shading or detail painting is required. A soft bristle will minimize the trace.

  The long stroke pen allows the painter to paint at a distance from the picture. In order to avoid unnecessary wastage, oil paints should be mixed in the palette before being used for painting.

  Brush cleaning

  Painting oil will inevitably encounter many problems, the most common problem is probably how to clean the oil painting pen.

  1. For frequently used pens:

  For example, if today's painting is not finished, it will continue tomorrow.

  First, use a clean tissue to remove the excess paint from the pen.

  Then hover the pen in turpentine and soak it until you want to use it. Take out the pen and dry it or wipe it dry, then you can continue to use it.


  It is necessary to cooperate with the pen washer to clamp the pen holder on the square like spring. The brush hair shall not touch the wall and bottom of the barrel to avoid deformation.

  This method is used to keep the brush hair wet and avoid paint consolidation and damage to the brush hair. Therefore, it is doomed to be unclean. Please remember the corresponding color of each pen when you use it next time to avoid the mixed color and dirty color caused by the residual paint of the brush hair.

  2. For pens that are not used for a long time or need to be cleaned thoroughly:

  For example, when the painting reaches here, it needs to wait until it is completely dry, and then it needs to be covered and dyed, which takes about a month. What about the pen? Or, this layer of the painting is just like this. Now that the task of this pen is finished, I need to clean it thoroughly and then dry it for preservation or other purposes. What should I do?

  The recommended method is to first wipe the excess pigment with a clean paper towel, then wash it once with turpentine, take it out and wipe it clean

  Then wash it with turpentine for a second time, take it out and wipe it clean. Until the turpentine does not change color when washing and the cloth or paper towel used to wipe the pen does not change color.

  Then you need a professional brush soap. Pour it into a white porcelain sink with hot water (it's ok if it doesn't boil, and it's hot if you touch it). Rinse the pen in it, take it out, scratch the surface of the brush soap and dip it in the soap, then gently tap the water and rub it on the white porcelain. Press the pen a little harder to make the brush hair unfold completely in a pie shape (you don't want to Do you feel like destroying your pen? But if the washing is not clean, the pigment will become more ruined. You will notice that some bubbles will appear. Then rinse the pen, rinse with the pen and bring water to wipe the foam on the wall of the sink, then rub it in the soap again and again until the bubbles appear white, without the color of the paint. Then rinse the soap thoroughly, remove the wall, and use the clean toilet paper to roll up the pen and dry it.

  Be sure to use professional brush soap:

  Be sure to use professional brush soap, do not use casual soap, which is not good for hair. Because the hair of the pen can also be understood as the hair of other animals. Like human beings, it also needs to be well maintained. The brush washing soap is equivalent to a shampoo integrated with shampoo and care. Recommend Leonardo da Vinci's brush soap. It's cheap and effective, about ¥ 40.

  Use the roll lightly:

  When using the paper roll, just wrap it gently. Don't roll it tightly like a small foot. When you open it again, you will find that the hair is rolled into a Longinus gun by you.

  In this way, you can get the same brush as the new one after washing. The brush hair is extremely smooth and keeps the original color of the brush hair.

  How to clean the palette
