Description

These Pro Arte Prolene Plus Synthetic Brushes are the very best-quality brushes in the excellent Prolene collection.

  • Synthetic watercolour brushes, they have incredibly soft fibres which feel closer than ever to natural sable, but with all the durability (not to mention the lower price) of a synthetic brush.
  • They’re a joy to paint with, and they’re beautiful-looking too, with ferrules in gold plate and teak handles.
  • The Series 009 is the Filbert version of the Pro Arte Prolene Plus Synthetic Brush. Its oval shape makes it particularly well suited to blending colours.

We sell it in a huge range of sizes to suit all purposes.

Q&A (5)
Q What can I use to clean these brushes?
A

This all depends on the kind of paint used. Synthetic bristles are quite robust and can be used with lots of different cleaning materials such as turpentine or solvent based paint brush cleaners. However, avoid using acetone based cleaners on synthetic brushes as this may affect the brushes longevity.

Q What are the benefits to using a synthetic brush as oppose to a natural hair brush?
A

The most obvious advantage is that using a synthetic brush is kind to animals, but synthetic brushes also tend to be more durable and longer lasting than a natural hair brush. Furthermore, synthetic brushes do not expand in water and tips of brushes also stay finer for longer. This can prove helpful when applying paint for fine detailing.

Q What are the benefits to using a natural hair brush as oppose to a synthetic brush?
A

Using natural hair for the bristles of a brush as oppose to using synthetic materials is a more traditional practice. Natural hair brushes tend to carry and hold more colour than a synthetic brush. 

Q What can I use to clean these brushes?
A

This all depends on the kind of paint used. Synthetic bristles are quite robust and can be used with lots of different cleaning materials such as turpentine or solvent based paint brush cleaners. However, avoid using acetone based cleaners on synthetic brushes as this may affect the brushes longevity.

Q Do they have long or short handles?
A

These are short handled brushes

14th July 2021 Reviewed by Anna Spencer The Pro Arte Prolene Plus range is surprisingly good - they perform well with good water holding capability, resilient 'spring' and crisp marks. Great for ** or professional. For certain projects it gives my Series 7 Kolinsky Sables a run for the money. Exceptional value.

28th June 2019 Reviewed by Ria Kirkbride Feels beautiful, looks beautiful, the filbert gives an interesting range of marks and the bristles ate super soft yet firm and have excellent water retention. A brilliant upgrade from the generic synthetic student grade ones available if you're looking for something a little better.
