These Acrylix Series 201 Filbert Brushes from Pro Arte are a new breakthrough long-handled brush designed as a synthetic alternative to the hog hair brushes for acrylic and oil painting. It goes way beyond to offer exciting new properties of its own. Acrylix, though firm, is flexible and has a lovely silky working texture - something it retains after many sessions in use. Prolonged standing in water has virtually no effect on them which is essential when using fast drying acrylic colours. This durable pearly filament also helps the artist to see and judge the colour on the brush; they'll endure and delight!
These brushes have long handles.
I hadn't used this shape brush before and was pleasantly surprised at the marks I could make with them. They wash well and hold their shape. I have really enjoyed working with these. Geoff Burgess (Sheffield, United Kingdom) on 12 May 2012
