Re: Are nicpro detail brush set suitable for mini oil paintings?
Those look like good, useful brushes. For miniatures it's not so much the size of the brush as it is having one that comes to a very fine point.
I use a variety of brushes -- synthetic sable, sable, hog bristle, nylon. The sizes I use typically range from no. 1 to no. 4, depending on what I'm doing. I use larger brushes for blocking in, smaller brushes for details, soft brushes for blending and glazing. The one "miniature" brush I use that is indispensable is the Princeton 20/0 #3050L liner brush. I use it for extreme delicate line work such as tree branches, twigs, etc.
