Round - 4000R 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. This brush is on a long handle.

Bright - 4000B Series

Love these brushes! (And brush cleaner and restorer)!

Love how these Synthetic Hog Bristle brushes perform - great snap and control, able to handle a full paint load. BUT I especially LOVE the Trekell Oil cleaner and brush restorer - have made a huge difference in the condition and longevity of my brushes.

Smooth and snappy

Love this brush - it works like a hog bristle brush but without the roughness of actual hog bristles. Leaves smooth, beautiful marks. Snaps back to shape. Washes well. Regularly clean your brush with linseed oil soap and it will last a long time.

The perfect pairing with my bristle brushes

For years I have been searching for the best replacements for small-sized hog bristle brushes - my go-to tools for oil painting. In smaller sizes, the hog bristle does not hold its shape well nor does it truly allow for fine control or detailed strokes, and as a wildlife artist, I often need the ability to make those careful controlled marks. I've long used sable for those smaller sizes, but those quickly become flaccid and worn - and have also tried various lines of Talkon brushes - but they lose their points with frayed tips. Then I discovered the Opal brushes here from Trekell! They are the perfect complement to my larger bristle brushes. They have spring and stiffness that is similar to the natural bristle, but they hold their shapes beautifully and allow for fine, controlled and detailed strokes (which is exactly what I want from my smaller brushes). I have not used them long enough to comment on how they will wear, but already they have become my favorite for smaller sizes. In particular, the long filberts are lovely to work with. I just ordered more of them.
