Painting Knives: How to Create Texture

Painting knives come in a variety of shapes. They can be used to create textures in a thick coat of paint or to spread paint over a surface area. Some knives have unique shapes that are perfect for creating unusual effects!

How to use painting knives:

Technique 1

1. Spread a smooth and fairly thick coat of medium over the support.
2. Drag the blade of the knife along the surface or dab at the medium to create relief.


Technique 2

1. Use the knife to put some paint on the palette.
2. Apply the paint to the support by pressing on the knife to spread the paint and create relief.

You will need:

  • DeSerres painting knives in a variety of shapes
  • Choice of acrylic paint colours
  • Thick acrylic medium
  • Choice of support
