Cameleon 1" one stroke brush

Post by Saskia D on Sun Apr 13, 2014 5:33 pm

I'm finding this new brush quite a challenge. It keeps the colours beautifully sharp and separate on my one stroke leaves, petals, rainbows... but my edges turn out rubbish every time! Any one else have this problem? Which one stroke brushes work best with TAG?

I use mostly Tag one strokes, and a few silly farm newer rainbow cakes.
I had the same problem with a #12 i bought at DeSerres (it was their brand of brush) It looked right, felt right, loaded right, but when i went to paint with it the same thing happened and it would separate on the edge and make my edges bad. Applying more pressure helped a bit, but ultimately i took it out of my kit.

The 3 brushes i keep in my kit now that work the best for me are:
Loew Cornell 3/4 (7550) Wash
II. J. Series (950) White Taklon
One Stroke Donna Dewberry 3/4 (1176) Flat Plaid

They are all pretty similar but the Lowe Cornell is my workhorse.

I use Royal Soft Grip 3/4" brushes from Michaels. They are my faves and I have about five of them. Love the acrylic handles. No chipping, peeling paint.

I have a Royal and its fab. I just wish they made a 1 " brush! I also have some prisma brushes, but they work much better with the prisma cakes than the tag...

I've worked out how to make the Cameleon brush work perfectly for me... spray a light spritz of water on the skin before painting. No more imperfect edges!

Dear Saskia D:
Thank you for sharing that very helpful hint!
Denise Cold has a fantastic YouTube video on loading your brush for one strokes. This video changed the way I approach my painting with one strokes.

Thanks for that. I think I'll watch all of hers now as had only previously seen a few. And I love the large angle shader... How will I ever make money out of this if I just go and spend it on more amazing art tools! It's very addictive indeed.
