Palette Knife Set ... Tim Holtz and Ranger - 2 (two) painting knives made of black plastic. Tools for mixed media, papercrafts, visual arts and painting.
Tim Holtz Spatulas are such versatile tools for any project using any type of texture pastes, mediums and paints. Each of the palette knives are made from a durable, single-moulded black plastic. They are light, flexible and easy to hold and use.
Sizes (approx) are from 7" to 7 1/2" long.
Pack of 2 (two) plastic palette knives.
Spatulas and knives are used for blending, mixing, painting, scraping, sculpting, moving, shaping, gel printing, marking - all kinds of mediums including paint, plaster, texture paste, embossing paste, glitter glues and gels, gel mediums, acrylic paint, clay, paperclay, sandable plaster and more.
Choosing which one to use for each project is simple ... match the size of the blade to what you're trying to achieve. Eg, spreading a wide even layer of gesso or plaster, the ideal shape would be the longest knife to give less areas of overlap. The little diamond shaped blade is great for small areas, blending through fine stencils. You soon get a feel for which one you prefer to use... like brushes, its a personal choice - there are no wrong ways to choose and use them!
Being plastic, they are ideal for mixed media, crafts and visual arts because they're flexible, do not rust, the handles don't come off even after years of constant use (because its one piece!), are super light, have ergonomic handles and resist damaging delicate surfaces.
This package contains 2 (two) plastic tools, 1 of each shape.
