How do you sign your paintings?  Using a small brush to write initials and date is not an easy thing to do, for me anyway! :help:

I sign my paintings with a #2 rigger brush. The trick here is to thin the paint down to a very watery liquid so that the brush can be used like a pen.

With very little practice it can be done easily - also can be signed quite small if need be.

Thank you, Dennis!  It's been so long since I've completed a painting that I forgot what to do!  It certainly makes sense to thin the paint!  And I have a #3 rigger brush, but I thought I needed a brush with very short bristles.  I'll do it your way!  O0

The rigger brush hold more paint (reservoir) and does not require constant refreshing.
