Undoubtedly the star applicator is the brush, it is the most common, the most functional and the one with the greatest variety, however, there are other options that can be very useful to achieve different effects, reduce the paint load or make it easier to draw in some difficult areas.

For the choice of brush you don’t have to think too much, it is simply important that the variety you have, covers the needs that your design will create, i.e. if you are going to paint a small design on a fabric slipper, it will probably help to have a fine round brush and if what you have in mind is to make a large drawing on a fabric bag, probably with a flat brush or a medium sized cat tongue brush you will be able to cover the larger areas better.For the choice of brush you don’t have to think too much, it is simply important that the variety you have, covers the needs that your design will create, i.e. if you are going to paint a small design on a fabric slipper, it will probably help to have a fine round brush and if what you have in mind is to make a large drawing on a fabric bag, probably with a flat brush or a medium sized cat tongue brush you will be able to cover the larger areas better.

Sponge

Your own hands

The use of the hands for painting is becoming more and more widespread, both among adults and especially among children. This activity is very stimulating for children because it entertains them, awakens their artistic expression, improves their self-esteem and psychomotor skills.The memory of that cloth bag, T-shirt or even curtain with the handprints, or even footprints, is well worth some time rubbing the stains off the skin with hot water so that they come out without a problem.

Imagination at its best

After all, painting is an absolute expression of imagination and creativity, so there are as many accessories you can use to paint as there are ideas you can come up with.

You can use a stamp for stamping, which you will have to impregnate with paint beforehand, you know, without overloading so that the design does not spread. But you can also use the edges of a plastic straw, a leaf from a real plant or a roll of toilet paper as a stamp, which you can cut the edges into several strips that you can use to make flowers or hearts depending on the shape you want to give it.

We always try to follow the premise that the most environmentally friendly item we can use is the one we already have at home.
