A better, longer lasting bristle brush that performs better than natural bristle across a broad range of media. The unique synthetic hairs of this brush provide the stiffness of a natural bristle and will maintain those qualities when used with water-based acrylics. A key advantage: it wont go limp in water! Modeled on the look and feel of hog bristle, this is the perfect brush for painters switching from oils to acrylic or water miscible oil. A real workhorse in even heavy bodied acrylics and suitable for use with gels and impasto media.
