The oil spalter is one of the most used tools in our decorative brush kit. Unlike the average chip brush, our spalter has a thick row (1/3 inch) of short hair that is densely packed with bristle for ultimate performance and control. The smaller sizes have a variety of uses, from applying a woodgraining effect, 'stretching' to softening.

  • High quality bristle keeps it's shape
  • stretch glaze for ultimate consistency
  • Can be used in oil/water when dedicated (learn more)
  • Excellent for applying thin varnish and waxes
  • Fine/subtle strie
  • Size 40 is perfect for creating butterflies in woodgraining
  • Size 60 and 80 are perfect to glaze tiny areas like mullions, dentils & window casing
  • Size 100 is the best for moire in woodgraining
  • Larger sizes are essential for entire walls

Brush Usage: stretch; soften roller marks on basecoat & varnish applications; moire
