The feather-touch difference
Our brushes produce exceptionally crisp lines down to the finest detail. This is possible due to our unique feather-touch tips that are pure natural bristle. Our RB Artiste™ Stenciler has a short, contoured wood handle with a satin finish that offers a velvety feel.
A typical stencil brush is created by grouping the bristles and then shearing off the end resulting in a flat stub. While you might get by with this for a large, wide open motif, using such a brush will not produce the best results with a stencil of even moderate detail. This is because the sheared end keeps the bristles on top of the stencil material. Imagine trying to stencil using a block. The block is going to rest on top of the stencil material and, if the open span of the motif is large enough, the block will make contact with the surface below in the mid-region but without making contact along an edge or into a corner.
We opted for numerical sizing because the brushes do not fall into an exact fractional size. The #2 and #1 are about 1/2" and a scant 3/8" respectively.
