These Acrylix Series 205 Filbert 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.
These brushes have just the right flex for heavy body acrylics but hold the fluid kind just as well. Good handles easily cleaned off afterward - I tend to be a messy worker. Ernest Barton (London, United Kingdom) on 29 Apr 2012
Lovely brushes to use, not too stiff and not too soft, and they keep their shape really well. William Robertson (London, United Kingdom) on 13 Dec 2013
