Discover the Superior Quality of Hog Bristle Brushes by Trekell Art Supplies

Nobody wants split ends! Wait!! We do!! Higher quality paint brushes, like Trekell’s Hog Bristle Brush line, feature bristles with split ends or flags. Bristles with flagged tips can pick up and hold more paint so that you can manipulate larger quantities while producing fewer brush marks.

Wide Range of Brush Shapes for Every Artistic Need:

ROUND - 400R SERIES - When people think of a fine art brush, they picture a round. The iconic, rounded shape is versatile, allowing artists to lay down washes, fills, and lines of all sizes. Rounds on the larger side can efficiently transform wide surface areas with fewer strokes. Those with finer points excel at delicate lines, intricate details, and tight corners.

BRIGHT - 400B SERIES - The shorter, evenly-shaped hairs of bright brushes are ideal for easily controlling heavy and thick applications of paint with succinct strokes. A bright brush's shape, a flat-end with a rounder-midsection, allows it to create either strong or sharp lines depending on the technique. If you're planning on painting a landscape or laying paint atop of paint in terse bursts, these brushes are a must.


FLAT - 400F SERIES - With medium-to-long bristles that form into a chisel-esque end, a flat brush is made to be maneuverable over large surface areas. Flat brushes are ideal for producing fluid streaks or long fine lines.

LONG FLAT - 400LF SERIES - The long flat, like the name suggests, is a longer flat brush with a subtly convex tip resembling a chisel. Known for holding its shape, a long flat is ideal if precision and control are needed when working with heavier paints.

FILBERT - 400KF SERIES - The filbert is a compromise between a flat and a round brush. Its medium to long hairs form a soft oval that's tapered at the end, a perfect shape for figurative blending and working within tight areas. The filbert is also a master of flow, making flat lines look rounded.


LONG FILBERT - 400MKF SERIES - Like its shorter counterpart, this variation on the filbert is quite handy. When you require a filbert's point but need a brush with greater flexibility, the long filbert fills in admirably.

FAN - 405 SERIES -
The spread-out bristles give the fan brush its characteristic dualist nature. It can quietly work in the background by blending, shading, and transitioning colors, but it can also become the star of the show by replicating a wide array of textures and special effects just by varying the technique.
