Smooth shading 15mag VS 7mag

How do you best shade big areas that need to be smooth?

like the top of skulls, or a sphere or something.

I've had better luck with a 7mag than with a 15mag, anyone else had this experience? or am I not doing it right with the 15 mag?

RE:Smooth shading 15mag VS 7mag

You know this is really weird but when I used a 13 mag I was able to get a smooth shade better than I would with a 7 or 9 mag.

When I'm oil painting the brushes I use tend to be around the same size as a 13 mag or bigger for medium to large areas. So I'm used to using something that size but if i try to use a smaller brush to get a smooth blending it never works.
