Brushes will gives a softer look than a foam blending pad. Dome-top natural bristles brush (holds more color than synthetic) with sliding sleeve that can be used to compact the bristles for a different effect.

Tim Holtz recommends one brush for each color family and he indexes the brush for easy identification by removing the cap and wrapping a piece of washi tape around the top and bottom of the ring, then he scribbles a Sharpie in one of seven colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, and black). It is important to note that if you’re using your brushes with dye inks and pigment inks, you’ll need two sets of brushes or be sure to clean well between these two inks. You never want to mix these two types of inks. You can use your brushes in Distress ink and then move to Distress Oxides with no issues, but you CANNOT go the other way – Distress Oxide to Distress ink because it will ruin your Distress inks.
