Since decorative painting is usually done with acrylic paint, synthetic bristle brushes are recommended.

Decorative paintbrushes come in an almost infinite number of shapes, each one suited to the particulars of the project. Since every paintbrush produces different lines, the most successful decorative painting projects combine several different brushes.

Soft synthetic bristles are perfect for very smooth brush strokes and resilient natural bristles create textured effects.

Decorative paintbrushes generally have short handles to allow for greater precision.

A number of accessories can be used alongside a set of decorative paintbrushes, including old toothbrushes, kitchen brushes, sponges and rags.
