Description

The Winsor & Newton Artists’ Oil Brush Wallet is a Cass Art exclusive, offering top-quality brushes for artists’ oil colours at really outstanding value – compare the price of a single brush to see how good a deal it is! The Artists’ Oil Brush Wallet comprises of six hog-hair brushes from the revered Winsor & Newton.

  • Each is made from real Chunking hog bristles, ideal for carrying oil colours due to their strength, which ensures the brush retains its shape, and their split ends, which mean they can take on more colour and distribute it more evenly.
  • The brush handles are designed to balance perfectly, whether you’re holding them up by the ferrule or at the tail. 

The Winsor & Newton Artists’ Oil Brush Wallet contains: Bright 2, Bright 6, Flat 8, Filbert 4, Round 2 and Round 6, and comes in a smart storage wallet.

Q&A (4)
Q What are the benefits of using natural hair brushes as oppose to synthetic brushes?
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. Hog brushes tend to leave a stronger brush mark than synthetic brushes, which is often favourable for those painting with oil. However, this will vary and overall the hog brush does not differ too much from their synthetic counterpart.

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 My brush has misshapen over time. How can I rectify this?
A

If your brush has misshapen, you can do so by soaking in boiling water and allowing brush to reshape. Please keep in mind that if your brush is resting on its bristles, this will affect its shape so take care when soaking. Should you wish to retain the point of your brush, you can do so by dipping in gum Arabic and reshaping. Make sure you leave your brush to dry fully before using after applying gum Arabic, as the medium could potentially change the effect of the paint you are using.

Q What can I use to clean hog brushes?
A

This all depends on the kind of paint used. Hog bristles are traditionally used for oil painting, as the hard-wearing nature of hog hair allows for it to withstand the solvents and harsh substances needed for cleaning oil paint from brushes. To clean oil paints from your hog brush you will need to use a white spirit to clean the initial oil paint from your brush.

To clean acrylic paint from your hog brush you can use warm water, along with a brush soap should you want a more thorough clean. Please note that acrylic paint dries quickly and once dry it can prove difficult to restore your brush back to its best quality. You should aim to wash acrylic paint from your brush before it dries.

18th June 2016 Reviewed by Elizabeth Syme I was disappointed in the product, I had expected really good brushes which would allow me to do fine details using bristle brushes and I can now see why the price was so reduced from the recommended retail price. The price on the wallet I received was cheaper than the on line price as was the rrp price so I felt mislead on all counts.

4th March 2015 Reviewed by Richard Green They seem to be well made and good, but it will be weeks before I really know how good they are. These things take time for me, but the price is good, so it is a worthy experiment. The case for long-handled brushes is a definite bonus.

11th November 2014 Reviewed by Wolfango Chiappella I used these brushes yesterday, and I have to say that they're very impressive. Windsor & Newton Hog Artist' Oil Brushes are on the par with the very expensive ***. The quality is superlative and have good long handles with two grip zones. One near the ferrule and one at the back of the handle which let you work comfortably whatever your painting style is. They come in a very good wallet which has space for even more brushes. Highly recommended.
