Figure 2-4: Some sizes of flat brushes and the marks they make. You definitely need a couple of small flats in different sizes and maybe a big one for large areas. The bigger you paint, the more you need bigger brushes. Other brushes, such as the round ones, have sizes indicated by number. With round brushes, the smaller the number, the smaller the brush. When they get down to 0 (zero), they get smaller by adding more zeros: 00, 000, and so on. Some miniature brushes go down in size to a single hair.
You do need some basics: For example, flats (which have hairs squashed along a row) and rounds (which have a full, round arrangement of hairs on the tip) are essential. You may find other shapes that you really like and that save you time while painting. I, for one, must have a liner brush. This brush has longer hairs than a normal brush. Not surprisingly, a liner brush makes long, thin lines good for such things as tree branches, grass, and slats in fences. Figure 2-3 shows several shaped brushes, along with the kinds of paint marks they make.
This stuff you add is either an additive or a medium, gel medium, or paste. Additives (like retarder and acrylic glazing liquid) allow the paint to move or dry in a different way. Mediums (which are pourable), gel mediums (which are thicker), and pastes (which are really thick and usually contain texture Chapter 3: All About Paints and Mediums additives) change the paint’s consistency to be either thinner or thicker and are basically like colorless paint. In general, mediums are thin enough to be pourable, and gel mediums and pastes aren’t.
