Round - 2500 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 - 2510 Series

The shorter, more evenly-shaped hairs of bright brushes can easily control heavy and thick applications of paint. 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.

Long Flat - 2515 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 is needed when working with heavier paints. It has a superior snap, meaning it springs back to its original shape.

Fan - 2530 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.

Script Rigger - 2550 Series

The long flats are excellent

The long flats are excellent for their springiness and what it gives you in terms of mark making calligraphy. They're genuinely beautiful to work with, and have become my main workhorse.

Love my Taklon

First I just ordered two of the golden Taklon brushes once I tried them I loved them. I now have 6 in my collection and look forward to adding more. They hold their shape beautifully and have just the right snap. I also love the price point...even at such a reasonable price they feel like my pricier brushes. I also teach and suggest them to my students. I’m a true fan....

I'm a Trekell brush Fan now!

I love these brushes for my oil work. They keep their shape and the flats have a good bend. I prefer short flats and they are holding up well with no splaying so far. I will be getting some Golden Talon rounds the next time. Super fast delivery and awesome pricing.

So far every brush that I have bought for Trekell has been excellent. I tried the Golden Talon 2500 series size 8 for the first time, it brought absolute enjoyment. I kept saying, even if this painting turns out bad, there is so much fun and ease using this brush, I was left invigorated. Painting was in oil realistic/impressionistic style. If you have a gentle and expressive touch this is for you.

Great brushes!

Trekell makes some of the best synthetic brushes on the market. The Golden Taklons are very precise, take a great point, and are great for painting fine details with fluid paint (for precise handling with stiffer paint, the Legion brushes are better). I also like that even the smaller sized brushes have substantial handles. I've never understood why brush makers scale down the handle diameter so much for smaller sizes. I mean, my HAND is still the same size. You won't find any spaghetti-strand handles here, though--even the 0-size handles are relatively beefy. These brushes are cheap enough that you can easily afford to replace them when they wear out, but they are also quite durable, so you won't need to replace them as often as you might think. Highly recommended.
