Synthetic Paintbrushes

Whilst some purists may argue that a true artist uses only animal hair brushes, we believe that everyone should be able to create art with whatever materials they like. That’s why we offer synthetic brushes, as these are often a great alternative to the more expensive brushes, such as Kolinsky sable brushes. Synthetic brushes are ideal for acrylic or watercolour painting, thanks to their softer and more flexible bristles.
