These brushes have long handles (approx 19 cm).
I bought these bristlene brushes as a vegan alternative to hog hair for dry brush blending acrylics and oil painting. They're excellent at both. Great quality, too. Nicki Myers (Cambridge, United Kingdom) on 7 May 2021
haven't used them yet, to give a detailed review but the certainly look good Moira MacPherson (Kelty, United Kingdom) on 16 Mar 2021
I've been using these brushes with oil paints for a week now, working on three paintings...
Whether you'll like them or not depends on the effects you want in your style of painting, but I think they're amazing and a fantastic bargain!!
The precision is excellent, quite unlike other hog brushes I use. The only negative is that the bristles stain easily, but I can live with that.
I'm so impressed I've just ordered another set, plus some more single Bristlene brushes. Kristine Nason (Bracknell, United Kingdom) on 2 Apr 2021
