The long flat head gives greater spring than short flat and so gives freer marks. Often used with more fluid oil colour and ideal for blending, glazing or covering large areas.
These brushes have long handles.
A nice compliment to the usual hog hair brushes I use, softer, holds paint well and good spring to the bristles. Would be good to have larger sizes too though Gina Emmett (Fordingbridge, United Kingdom) on 27 Mar 2013
These are my favourite brushes for oil paint, these flats (long brights) have a nice sharp edge for fine detail. Charmian Hayes (Milton Keynes, United Kingdom) on 13 Nov 2012
Thought these were expensive and tentatively order two - so pleased that have now several. Brenda-Leone Hayward (Bristol, United Kingdom) on 4 Apr 2018
