A last minute memory of having a stipple brush I rarely used with acrylics;
I searched for it in my box of things not used. I tested it with watercolors. The stipple brush with fairly wet watercolors (upper left cobalt turquoise paint splotches)looks a bit like a footprint. Stipple works so-so with the dry brush straight up (lower left turquoise paint). Turned on its side and flung with my thumb did a good spray pattern, but why? A toothbrush works well (finer spray in purple), and a #8 round (orange paint) taps out a nice pattern. I use the rounds and splatter large drops, and rarely use the toothbrush.
