The Princeton Catalyst Polytip Bristle Flat Brush is a completely synthetic brush that is specially designed to deliver the performance of genuine hog bristle. The Flat profile has longer bristle length than the Bright, which gives it greater spring. It is perfect for creating looser marks with more fluid colour.
Princeton Catalyst Polytip Bristle Brushes make use of Princeton's breakthrough NexGen synthetic technology. These synthetic advancements allow each fibre to be split, creating a hair that mimics the flag structure of genuine hog bristle. This structure gives Catalyst brushes superb colour holding capacity and smooth application. Unlike genuine hog, Catalyst brushes have fantastic resilience in water. This brush range is 100% synthetic.
Catalyst Brushes are perfect for use with medium to heavy bodied acrylics and oil paints. They will manipulate even the heaviest media with ease.
These brushes have long handles.
I bought this brush along with others in the same range in order to paint a wall mural. The stiff bristles are excellent for this and they hold enough paint to create smooth sweeping lines. They were used with the Molotov graffiti paints. Highly recommended. Justin Davies (Caernarfon, United Kingdom) on 1 Sep 2021
