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. 1 is has two angled edges, similar to a traditional a painting knife. The flexible silicone construction allows more possibilities than a metal palette knife. The blade can also be removed so that the wooden handle can be used as a separate pottery or painting tool, if desired.
