Stroke brushes have long, rectangular ends that are primarily used for watercolor and ink applications, as well as for sign painting as they have a large color-carrying capacity and create long, fluid strokes. May be used to lay-in large areas of color, create detail, and for blending. Similar to flats, strokes tend to have a slightly more tapered end.

A large single well on one side of the palette is excellent for creating washes. The bright white color allows artists to see the exact color they lay down on paper, and cleans easily with soap and water.
