Along with paint brushes, the palette knife is a useful item in the artist’s tool kit. While primarily used for mixing colours on the palette, it can also be used for painting and artists such as Rembrandt often used a palette knife in their work.
Made from steel or plastic, a palette knife can have a rounded tip, resembling a putty knife, making it ideal for mixing paint or a pointed tip like a trowel, making it suitable for painting. At Eckersley’s we have sets of palette knives designed for both uses in popular brands such as Jasart, Art Spectrum and Liquitex and we can provide advice on their uses if needed.
