What excatly is that. Is it like jabbing the paint and if so will that not ruin the point on your (expensive) brush?

Good question....depending on the effect you are trying to create....stippling can range from jabbing, as you put it, to a patting motion with the side of a brush. If you use the point, use an older brush...usually all of the motions of stippling are done with a clean dry brush, using the wet on wet paint method to kind of 1/2 blend it in.....good for 5 o'clock shadow....or different horses...like a star on a horses face or socks on it's feet.
Hope this helps clear it up for you.

One other example that I can think of would be to simulate the application of mud over a base color for camouflage on vehicles. I just find an old, cheap,stiff brush, take some nail clippers to it to cut it to shape and start work
