Catalyst Blades are an innovative new product; not quite a brush and not quite a palette knife. This versatile tool works great with heavy-bodied paints and can be used with oils, acrylics, water-miscible oils, and even plaster and clay. Catalyst blades feature flexible silicone heads secured atop beautifully crafted artist brush handles. Heat-resistant and FDA-approved, the silicone heads allow Catalyst Blades to be used safely in many mediums, from encaustics to food crafting. The silicone is solvent-resistant and easy to wipe clean with mild soap and water. Blades can even be separated from the wood handles while cleaning and replaced when dry.
Blade No. 5 has a comb-tooth edge for creating evenly-spaced fine lines and indentations. Whether you are working with paint or clay, you can create really great lines with this flexible tool. The blade can also be removed so that the wooden handle can be used as a separate pottery or painting tool, if desired.
