Q&A (6)
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 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 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 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 I love these brushes and have bought a second set as a present for my daughter. My absolute favourite is the size 4 filbert. Is it possible to buy this brush separately?
A

Dear Christine Cross,

Thank you for your enquiry unfortunately at this stage we dont have our own brand filbert brushes but the link below is of a brush in a similar hair to the grey synthetic that you may want to try, it also has a sale offer on it at present.

Thank you Cass Art

Q How long is longest brush, need to know if will fit in storage box
A

The longest brush is just shy of 32cm long.

23rd September 2016 Reviewed by Lynn Wallond Nicely balanced, good quality and feel nice in the hand. Have not used these as yet (they will be used with acrylics) - they have been purchased for a future project. When they were cleaned ready for use the bristles went back to shape beautifully, had a good spring and felt really smooth when drawn across the back of my hand.
