Here she is – the tool you’ve all been waiting for! Introducing the IOD Silicone Paint Blade – a must-have for any trowel painting technique. It’s just like adding buttercream frosting to a cake. Smooth and delicious texture – without the calories!
The IOD Silicone Paint Blade is a brand new DIY decor tool for applying paint, blending, and creating texture. You can use it for troweling techniques with paint (that’s our favorite!) as well as with texture mediums for raised stenciling. When you use the IOD Silicone Paint Blade, you use less paint than with a paintbrush and can easily save any unused paint by scraping it off the blade and back into the container.
It’s also perfect for people like me who are terrible about washing out their paintbrushes. Crusty, day-old dried chalk-style paint comes off oh, so easy!
The small blade has a 65mm (2.5”) blade. The large blade has a 140mm (5.5”) blade. They are approximately 70mm (2.75”) high and approximately 20mm (0.75”) deep at the thickest point of the handle.
WHY NOT JUST USE A REGULAR TROWEL?
Common trowels, such as a putty knife, are rigid and have very little (or no) flex. This means they retain their shape regardless of the texture of the surface you are working on.
Unlike a rigid trowel, the IOD Silicone Paint Blade engages with your topographical surface. When you press down, it flexes and changes shape to fill in the high and low points.
HOW TO USE THE IOD SILICONE PAINT BLADE – THE BASICS
When coating a surface with the paint blade, you’ll want to keep the following in mind:
- “Thin for the win” first coat
- Blade angle and pressure control the thickness of your paint
- Adding texture
- Adding color
The paint blade is fabulous for any flat or curved surface. And it will save you time and paint when working on porous materials, such as upcycled cabinet doors, plywood, and other unfinshed woods.
