Brush FAQs

Other artists have asked us...

  • Are real hair brushes better quality?
    No - different filaments suit different types of paint. For acrylic paint, synthetic bristles offer the best spring, durability, color carrying and distribution, while for water colors and oils different filaments such as real hair can be better.
  • What can I do with a fan brush?
    Use it for smoothing and blending your color. It gives soft, feathered edges and is excellent for creating textured effects.
  • How many different shaped student brushes do you offer?
    We offer five shapes - Bright, Round, Filbert, Fan and Flat.
