If you’ve ever spread frosting on a cake, you have an idea of the textural possibilities when using a painting knife to create an oil painting, different from painting with a brush. The terms painting knife and palette knife are often used interchanged when describing the technique of applying paint to a surface with the blade of an artist’s knife. Rooftop curated a Knife Painting Workshop with Tithi Jay.
The tools are made of either plastic or of wood and metal and are available in a variety of blade shapes and sizes. A palette knife handle is straight, having a slight bend. The purpose of the palette knife is to mix colours or clean the surface of the palette.
