The Pro Arte Bristlene Series D Synthetic Hog Round Brush is perfect for oil and acrylic painting. They are made from a blend of exceptionally durable synthetic fibres, designed to mimic the properties of natural hog hair.
These brushes have excellent shape retention, so can be used time and time again and will return to their original shape. As they are made from 100% synthetic materials they are the ideal alternative to natural hog hair for vegan artists or painters looking to cut down on animal-derived art supplies.
This range of Bristlene Round brushes have a round profile at the ferrule that tapers to a fine point. Round is the most versatile brush shape, suitable for a range of painting techniques.
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
A nice brush for oils. It has enough bristles to work with heavy bodied paint like oils. Time will tell if its as good as hog. Paul Ranson (Worthing, United Kingdom) on 17 Mar 2021
