Acrylic or Oil painting brushes

The tough and resilient synthetic and natural bristle brushes used in acrylic and oil painting are the more traditional choice for “scrubbing” lights into watercolor paint.

The stiffer hairs can quickly scrub an area covered in paint down to the paper surface.

Control is rather coarse using bristle brushes. The soft hair lift (see “watercolor brushes” above) “teases” the paint from the paper. This “scrubbing” method is more aggressive and can harm the paper if used with too much enthusiasm.
