These brushes are made from strong synthetic hairs which are perfect for lifting out. Lifting out is a technique where you remove the paint from the painting to create highlight. Using a clean brush, you can lift off the colour revealing the surface below. Some colours are more staining than others and will be more difficult to remove.
To use these effectively, you should run the damp brush over the area which needs lifting. Try not to use the brush too wet. You can also use a piece of kitchen towel to help lift off by gently dapping over the area where you have used the lift off brush. Keep the lift off brush clean between each application.
