A unique crimping and heating process has blessed these brushes with an authentic snap, making them perform like a natural Red Sable brush. They are great brushes for laying down layers of paint without disturbing what is underneath.
It's no wonder they are among Trekell Pro Team Artists Eric Johnson, Anthony Hurd, Chelsea Leopold and Kent Williams favorite brushes. These beauties are leaders among other synthetics. Their endurance and execution is unlike anything you’ve ever used before.
ROUND - 5600 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 and intricate details.
BRIGHT - 5610 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. Commonly used in landscape painting or when painting atop paint. If you're planning on laying paint atop of paint in terse bursts, these brushes are a must.
FILBERT - 5620 SERIES
The filbert's 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.
FAN - 5630 SERIES
The spread out bristles give the fan brush its titular shape. It’s primarily known for creating multiple lines or dots that are uniform. It’s also commonly used to blend and shade backgrounds. That said, a fan brush can replicate a wide array of textures and special effects just by varying the technique.
CAT'S TONGUE - 5640 SERIES
The cat's tongue is a utility brush, performing many techniques well. Like a filbert with a point, its triangle tip is for delicate lines, edge for medium-sized strokes, and flat side for bold lines and confident washes. A growing favorite among watercolorists, though it works well with most media.
SCRIPT - 5650 SERIES
The script brush's long hairs are formed into a narrow point. Tasks requiring delicate details, such as highlighting, outlining, and lettering, are where the script brush has made its name, though its paint-carrying capacity also allows for long, unbroken strokes. This brush is on a long handle.
LINER - 5680 SERIES
The liner brush is similar to the script brush, just with a smaller, narrower shape. If a project calls for deft control, such as lettering or tight outlines, a liner brush is the right choice.
Last, but certainly not least… Brush cleaning and care should always be a top priority for every artist. If you take care of your brushes, they’ll take care of you. Properly cleaning and storing your brushes after each use will allow them to perform consistently and last longer.
