Synthetic bristle alternative.
This excellent work-horse brush keeps it's shape and is good to clean... A cross between the feel of Nylon and Hog Bristle, having a good spring.
Comes in a variety of shapes - the shorter haired varieties are good for impasto, and tight control of marks. The longer haired varieties carry a lot of paint and are good for laying in and general wor
Two equal amounts of best quality Chinese bristle are set opposite each other so that the natural curve of the hair is facing inwards.
This traditional Bristle has a strong loaded stroke, NOT a precise mark.
If you are looking for a tighter stroke, and a brush that holds a crisper shape, try the Ivories.
The Evergreen brushes make precise brush marks, with the short flats giving a sharp edge and the pointed rounds keeping a tight point. A slightly softer feel than Ivory.
An excellent choice for Oil and Acrylics.
Cleans very well.
An extremely versatile brush for use with any medium, and is especially good for ACRYLIC.
For oil, acrylic, or watercolor.
A blend of ‘firmer’ Nylon filaments giving the strength of bristle yet offering a delicate feel through the brush stroke. Good ‘snap and spring’, good holding reservoir, resilient and durable.
Synthetic mongoose alternative.
Softer and smoother than the Ivory or Natural Hog Bristle.
A wonderful multi-purpose brush that blends well and holds plenty of paint. The longer haired shapes make an expressive mark.
Great for a second layer of oil paint, blending, finishing.
A breakthrough alternative to Sable.
Makes a smooth mark, can be used for blending, glazing, and detail work.
Works beautifully in watercolor, oil & acrylic.
A beautiful natural hair with distinctive markings and a semi-firm stroke, each tip having the softness of velvet.
This hair is responsive, yet delicate as it touches the work. Use with oil and acrylic, ideal for adding highlights and tonal values. A very resilient hair which wears well.
Ideal for watercolor and delicate work in oil.
The natural characteristics of the hair offer a good ‘belly’ for holding lots of liquid. Upon touching the paper the brush will release water similar to a fountain pen.
For oils: carries the paint with flow and precision, making it ideal for placing details.
Can be used for finishing layers, delicate layers, glazing.
