The partially flat top and gently curved edge of the Curved Flat makes this a unique brush in the decorative painter's toolbox. The arc allows for the creation of seamless circles and full, bright commas. Straight and arched strokes are simple, perfect for leaves, petals, stems, and ribbons. Easy to side load, the brush delivers even more unique effects. And don't forget, this brush is also efficient for basic base painting, especially around tight edges.
