The Pro Arte Bristlene Series D Synthetic Hog Fan Brush is ideal for oil and acrylic painting. They are made from a blend of synthetic fibres that mimic the working properties of hog hair and deliver excellent durability.
Bristlene brushes have fantastic shape retention, so can be used time and time again and will return to their original shape. They make an excellent alternative to natural hog hair brushes - whether you're a vegan artist or just want to cut down on animal-derived materials - as they are made from 100% synthetic materials.
These brushes have a fan profile made from fibres arranged into a canopy-like shape. They are great for creating special effects and can be used for blending, softening edges or adding texture.
These brushes have long handles (approx 19 cm).
The brush has a nice snap and should cope with heavy bodied paint. It could do with about double the amount of bristles (its a bit thin) hence the missing star. Paul Ranson (Worthing, United Kingdom) on 17 Mar 2021
