Ink/Color Dusters Vs Shaving Brushes

 The top photo is of a pack of Color Dusters from Judikins.  They aren't available here in New Zealand, so I went on the "hunt" for something else...
 ...and I found these, shaving brushes.  I bought a couple and came home and tried them out...
 ...and this is the card I made using them.  The shaving brushes give a very soft effect (the colours around the hedgehog) as opposed to my old stippling brushes. (Below) Also I used to do some sponging on some of my cards but I found it messy and I could never get the sponging quite right, there was always a blob of ink that was too dark.  And it was never 'smooth'. You don't get that with the shaving brushes! 
If you cannot get the Ink or Color Dusters, try shaving brushes because you get the same effect!  They cost $2 each and I found mine at one of the $2 Shops.  Once I knew they worked, I went back the next day and got some more.  I am sure the assistant (who had served me the day before!) wondered why I was buying so many men's shaving brushes!! 
You can see that the stippling brushes are much thinner than the shaving brushes.  The shaving brushes are softer than the stippling brushes too.  BTW, some companies call them Ink Dusters and some call them Color Dusters.
Okay that's all for now!  Thank you for visiting, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)
