Smile Painter Set Now Includes Wolfe Brushes

I wanted to announce a little update to my Smile Painter Set face painting kit, which I put together about 6 years ago to help out those who have been asked to volunteer face painting for their local church or school.

I have just decided to swap out the previously included sable brushes with two Wolfe synthetic brushes, in a round #1 and #5. While it is true that sable bristles are the highest quality and most long lasting bristles you can get in a brush, I have come to the realization that they are not necessarily the best choice for the beginning face painter.  Sable brushes are finicky and do require a little more TLC to keep their tips nice and pointy, and without the proper care can soon become "fluffy," making it hard to be precise when painting cheek art.  I personally own several sable brushes which have "fluffed out" on me, and I now use them for things like blending colors and creating textures like fur, where a fluffy brush comes in handy!

I personally have found myself using my new Wolfe synthetic brushes more and more as my go-to brush for all my main painting now.  The synthetic bristles are still of a great quality, and they really hold their shape nicely even if they have been used and abused.  High quality synthetic brushes are more likely to give you a steady and predictable outcome every time, and I think that by swapping these out, new painters will have less frustration with stray bristles!
