CHOOSING A KNIFE
Painting with a knife is a bit like putting butter or jam on bread and it produces quite a different result to a brush. Painting knives are excellent for producing a range of effects, from textured impasto work to sweeping areas of flat color, even tiny shapes of color.
A painting knife and a palette knife are very similar and many people use the terms interchangeably. However, there is a difference between the two knives.
