A method for taking out brush marks and creating a transparent look on windows. Paint is mixed with linseed oil to slow the drying process, then brushed on the surface to be stippled. A stippler is created by wrapping a piece of cheesecloth or other lint-free cotton rag around a wad of cotton, which is then either held firmly in the hand or securely attached to a short stick,taking care that the work surface of the stippler is wrinkle-free. Stippling is done by daubing the stippler over the wet,painted surface.

A technique used in both hand and machine quilting, though found more commonly in machine quilting. Stippling is a continuous, closely placed non straight line used to fill in an area of a quilt. The stippled line never makes a sharp turn and never crosses itself. Stippling is used to flatten an area of a quilt and to create texture. When stippling while hand quilting, the stitches made should align. Please see for an example of machine stippling.
