Stencil paint brushes are used for dry brush stenciling. A good quality stencil paint brush is made from natural bristle with a good flat end but not chopped so as to retain the bristles natural flag end tips. The bristles are densely packed and retain their shape well when pounced. They come with different end shapes for different stenciling effects. A domed shape will give a softer outer edge where as a flat end shape will yield a crisp sharp outer edge.
