Chip, Chip, Hooray!

I've had so many queries about chip brushes, especially from our artistic sistren on other continents, that I thought I'd show you what I use. Sorry the photo is so small but you can click on the image for a close-up.

I love these brushes -- they free me to fly when I add paint because they are so cheap (I think the most I've ever spent is $3.99 for Big Mama) and because they just get better with age and wear. 

May the same be true for us!

JeriAnn - thank you for the visual on chip brushes. I use them all the time but had no idea what they were called!

Yay for Big Mama and all her chips ! These tools rule !

(Can you tell I am feeling a little antsy for Spring ? ;-))

Thanks for your wonderful 5 point comment on my Blogaversary post ! Your friendship and constant encouragement really do mean a lot to me, JeriAnn !
Big blogland hugs !

THANKS so much for the picture. I'm one of the brush challenged so just seeing what you use helps a lot.

ah HA!....you mean Crap Brushes?....oh. That's what I call them only because you can get them all crapped up and not feel too much guilt. I'm grateful for the expanded vocabulary!....I'm betting that your studio is wonderful and fully functional. Also, those brushes look really clean. I'm not letting you see MY ratty collection....unless you come for a visit.

OH, thank you for showing the chip brushes, I was wondering about them.

My first thought echoed Lisa's...these are USED brushes??

AND, why of course we ALL get better with age!

Thanks for the great links above! Love sifting through all the wonderful images.

I've got a bunch of these, but often forget to use them. Duh.
I've seen them labeled as gesso brushes at the local craft store & they are dirt cheap.
