Catalyst™ by Princeton • Tools that move paint
Not quite a brush. Not quite a palette knife. Catalyst™ tools are crafted from flexible silicone to allow artists a new form of expression. Available in two unique styles: Catalyst™ Wedges are ergonomically designed to fit in your hand allowing a direct interaction with your work. Catalyst™ Blades are mounted on artist brush handles offering a blend of tradition and innovation.
Designed for use with heavy-bodied paints, Catalyst™ is at home with oils, acrylics, and water-miscible oils. Because they are heat-resistant, they excel with encaustics. Artists are using them with plaster, clay, and even frosting. Made of FDA-approved silicone, Catalyst™ Blades and Wedges are great for food crafting.
Clean-up is a breeze with Catalyst™ Blades and Wedges. The silicone is easy to wipe clean and is solvent resistant. Clean up in most cases can be done with mild soap and water. Dried paint can be peeled off the silicone surface. Catalyst™ Blades can be separated from their wood handles for cleaning and easily replaced when dry.
When working with acrylics and mixed media I have changed to the Catalyst blades/wedges exclusively now. I mix my colours on my canvass and the catalyst tools are an extension of my arm effortlessly moving the colour. I can easily apply paint from thick to the thinest inks and move the product around to do so much more than I ever could using brushes. Quite frankly I think that my work has become more dynamic and exciting. I would recommend them to anyone.
Just had fun creating different lines and shapes with my no. 1 Wedge.
