Winsor & Newton Artisan Short Flat/Bright Brushes, long handle, 8 sizes
A long handled short flat brush for use with heavy colour applications. The head features specially tapered fibres, which prevent the hairs splaying and ensure a controlled width of mark. Creates sharp edges with control.
Artisan brushes offer the performance of bristle but maintain spring and shape when wet. The brushes can be cleaned with soap and water only as no solvents are required.
About the fibres:
The natural hog bristle is not ideally suited for water mixable oil colour because when soaked in water, the bristle loses shape and its spring becomes weak. Synthetic brush ranges are not ideally suited for use with oil colour as they are generally developed for acrylics and the blend of filament can be too soft and too flexible.
Artisan brushes have been developed with a unique blend of high quality synthetic fibres, making them strong and durable and perfect for working with thick, full bodied colour straight from the tube and specifically water mixable oils, and acrylics.
