Paint Brushes

A paintbrush is a brush used to apply paint or ink. It is made by clamping the bristles to a handle with a ferrule Paint brushes are made from stiff or soft hairs, which can be either natural hairs or synthetic fibres. Brushes come in a variety of sizes and are used by artists, Painters, Decorators and DIY enthusiasts


Types of Paint Brushes
•Synthetic Brushes are excellent and have the advantage of being cheaper than natural hair. Man-made of either nylon or polyester filaments treated in various ways, These brushes are particularly good for acrylic paint which can be hard on and also damage natural hair brushes. These brushes are great for large-scale work. Good synthetic brushes are rugged, maintain their shape well, and can be easily cleaned.


•Natural hair brushes normally comes from Goat, Hog, Pony, Camel, Badger Kolinsky Sable and Ox. When working with oil based paints or alkyd paints, the natural bristle brushes are a good choice as they give you the ability to achieve a smooth and level finish. Don’t use a natural bristle brush with water base coatings! The natural fibres will absorb water making them sticky and causing them to lose their shape.


•Soft brushes - Soft brushes are ideal for thin paint which spreads easily, such as watercolour paint, and for detailed work as they can form a sharp point which allows for precision painting.


•Hard brushes are ideal for pushing around thick paint, and for creating brush marks in the paint


•Bristle shape – Most brushes are square cut which is great for holding and laying paint onto virtually any surface, however square-cut brushes don't provide as much control when painting into corners, up to adjacent surfaces, or along narrow edges or surfaces. For more precise control, use a sash brush, which has its bristles cut at a slight angle. Sash brushes are particularly well-suited for cutting in around the perimeter of a room.
