Small Paint Brushes

Sometimes it is hard to find brushes tiny enough for painting features on a small scale doll. Look in your local hobby and art supply stores for Ultra Mini brushes. There are on-line source too; try Jerry's Artarama, Dick Blick Art Supplies and Micro-Mart. I'm sure there are others too.

We have found that synthetic filament works as well as natural hair with both acrylic and heat-set paint.

Not familiar with brush sizes? Ultra Mini sizes are labeled 10/0, 12/0 down to 20/0 (one of the smallest is 20/0 and is very hard to find).

Some shapes to look for are Filbert, Round, Spotter, and Liner.
