Fantastix and Brushstix, although made by the same company, are quite different. Just Google some images. Doubt that either is sold in a bucket. Tortillons (rolled paper applicators) are usually preferred over Fantastix for the Gamsol technique.

The Brushstix label suggests it be used for applying Stazon, Glazon, and other mediums to paper. For instance, stamp a tree in black; add various greens to the foliage and browns to the trunk from your stamp pads with the Brushstix. It does not work well for background sponging; the tips are too concentrated and produce streaking and mottled effect.
