These Acrylix Series 201 Round 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.
After working in watercolour and now working in oils these brushes feel very comfortable to work with. Barbara Mccabe (Sheffield, United Kingdom) on 15 May 2012
Love these fine nylon brushes, mainly for signing painting or very fine work. Chris Chalk (Cardigan, United Kingdom) on 23 May 2017
These were rightly recommended by our art teacher as the best for acrylics, which they seem to be. They apply smoothly, without splaying. Cleaning is easy and effective. Peter Rowley (Croydon, United Kingdom) on 8 Jun 2018
