Thanks! Not at all, everyone's gotta learn somewhere. It's a type of shaped knife (mostly triangled) used to paint with, instead of a brush. They come in a lot of different angled shapes, for more effects or ways to control the paint. (www.mmwindowtoart.com/webimage… It mostly involves a lot of dabbing with paint, and scrapping motions. Wouldn't be the best tool to use for a crazy detailed, clean painting.
Now I'm no pro at it, just started playing with the tools last week, but a quick search on google can show you a lot of really good examples of fully colored paintings all done with a pallet knife (and definitely more knowledge than I can give lol). Hope that helps!
Wow, thanks for all the information. Way more than I was expecting (and I mean that in a good way). I think the link's broken (that or my computer's glitching it up), but don't worry about it--I'll follow through on the Google idea.
