These brushes are made from a unique synthetic fiber that mimics the characteristics and performance of natural mongoose hair. They are stiffer than sable, but softer than hog bristle and their tapered points are excellent for painting detailed, controlled lines. The synthetic fibers offer greater durability than natural hair. Suitable for oils and acrylics.
Angular Brights/Shaders: Used for tight shading and curved strokes.
Brights: Length and width of brush is generally squared. Similar to flats, but shorter hairs make a stiffer brush.
Fans: Brush fibers are spread out making it useful for subtle blending and for textural effects.
Filberts: Create a softer edge than a flat or bright.
Flats: Longer hairs than a bright, this brush has more flex and a large color carrying capability.
Rounds: Smaller sizes are typically used for detail work and larger sizes tend to be used for washes and filling in color.
