Paint Brush Highlights: the Smartbrush™

The Smartbrush™ is a pull apart brush that works with touchscreen devices, tablets and smart phones.  It is created with special fibers that are conductive, making them recognizable by capacitive screens.  Smooth metal handle and casing makes it light and comfortable to hold, yet sturdy.  The tuft is a soft round that easily moves on the surface of a tablet.  

This brush is meant for drawing and painting digitally, to work without the stickiness or drag of finger tips.  Even when using apps that aren't specifically drawing, the brush works as a stylus to keep your device clean.  Using a Smartbrush is the best way to paint and sketch on an iPad.  

You can find the Smartbrush™ now online at Amazon sold by Artist Brushstrokes or through Alvin & Company.  It would be a perfect stocking stuffer for the upcoming holiday season.  

There are hundreds of drawing and sketching applications to scratch your digital itch.  I enjoy ArtStudio, Brushes, Touch Paint and Inkflow, which is more of a notebook application.  Let us know which ones are your favorites.  Post a comment below with your favorite drawing or painting app and a link to some of your work.

Keep Painting,
Karyn
