Paintbrushes have a long and storied history, some are made from animal hair - sable brushes are still made from weasel hairs – before manufacturing in greater quantities forced brush-makers to start incorporating other materials, such as synthetic materials for paint brushes. Further developments included introducing a metal ferrule, which gave paintbrushes distinctive methods of picking up and putting down paint, allowing artists to experiment even further with their painting styles.
Thanks to all of these developments over time, we stock a wide range of paintbrushes, including the aforementioned sable brushes, synthetic paint brushes, watercolour brushes, oil & acrylic brushes and hog brushes. We also offer a wide range of brands, from Winsor & Newton to Daler Rowney, so if you’ve got a particular favourite brand to use, or if you’re looking for a new favourite, we’ve got your needs covered.
We also offer painting brush sets from across a range of brands as well as our own Cass Art set so that you can be confident that you won’t run out of brushes in the middle of a project.
So whether you’re just starting out on your art journey, or are an experienced painter across a range of media both traditional and modern, we’ve got a selection of paint brushes, whether you need professional paint brushes or something to get you started.
If you’re just starting out, then do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you need recommendations as to what kind of paintbrush to use and just how to get that effect that you’re after when it comes to painting.
