IOD Silicone Paint Blades
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.
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 a paintbrush and easily save any unused paint by scraping it off the blade and into a container.
It’s also perfect for us who are terrible about washing out her paintbrushes. Crusty, day-old dried chalk-style paint comes off so easy!
Why not 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.
