The Pro Arte Bristlene Series D Synthetic Hog Filbert Brush is suitable for both oil and acrylic painting. Made from a blend of synthetic fibres, these brushes offer excellent durability and perform like a natural hog hair brush.
The Bristlene brush range offer fantastic shape retention, springing back to their original shape without distortion. As they are 100% synthetic, they are an ideal alternative to natural hog hair brushes for vegan artists or painters looking to limit their animal-derived art supplies.
These brushes have a filbert shaped tip of fibres arranged in a flat, rounded formation. This oval profile creates a rounded mark that is great for blending.
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
