These Acrylix Series 203 Rigger Brushes from Pro Arte are a new breakthrough 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 short handles.
Happy so far with both brushes - two different sizes. Both produced good fine lines, both straight and curved, with acrylics. Went back to point when clean and dry. Only long term use will tell you just how good a brush is. Gillian Everett (Aubusson, France) on 16 Mar 2012
I have used these brushes for several years now and I can find no better for durability and quality when working fine detail with W&N Griffin Alkyd paints, highly recommended. John Griffiths (Cannock, United Kingdom) on 7 Apr 2015
I like the firmer filament that is used in the manufacture of the rigger brush. Another great
