What is a wet brush?
A wet brush is a brush that has been soaked in water or other liquid, typically paint or ink. The liquid helps tomove the pigment around on the surface and also prevents the brush from drying out.
There are a few different techniques that can be used with a wet brush, depending on the desired effect. For example, if you want to create soft edges, you can use a dry brush to apply the pigment, then use a wet brush to blend the edges. If you want more control over the pigment, you can use a dry brush to apply it in small sections, then use a wet brush to spread it out.
Wet brushes can also be used to create unique textures and patterns on surfaces. For example, by dripping or splattering paint onto a surface and then using a wet brush to swirl it around, you can create a marbled effect. You can also create interesting patterns by using different shaped brushes (such as combs or toothbrushes) to apply the paint.
One thing to keep in mind when using a wet brush is that it will cause the pigment to spread out further than it would if you were using a dry brush. This means that you will need to use less pigment overall, and it may take longer for the colors to dry.

How do you paint with a wet brush?
To paint with a wet brush, you’ll need to dampen the bristles with water before dipping them into the paint. You can do this by running the brush under a faucet or by swishing it around in a cup of water. Once the bristles are damp, shake off any excess water and then dip the brush into your chosen paint color. Then, apply the paint to your surface in the same way you would with a dry brush.
