What are the pros of using a palette knife?

- Palette knives are less subject to wear compared to brushes.

- Easy to clean (with a cloth or absorbent paper).

- Palette knives allow you to remove the paint easily if you made any mistake.

- They last much longer than brushes if you take reasonable care of them.

- Can be used with both oil and acrylic paints.

- You can paint more freely and quickly and give an impressionistic touch to your work.

- No need to use thinners: the paint must keep its density and knives can be cleaned without thinner, as opposed to brushes.

- Since they are so easy to clean, your colors and color mixes remain “cleaner”.
