Opal - Synthetic Hog Bristle

DESCRIPTION

Trekell’s Opal Line of brushes uses the finest in synthetic hog bristle. Like a natural hog bristle brush, an Opal is incredibly durable, able to keep its stiff shape even after heavy duty use. It’s also versatile, handling the rigors of either oil or acrylic with ease. However, these brushes have their own unique flow, producing a rich texture that’s all it own. That’s what makes the Opal more than just an alternative. See the difference for yourself. Try an Opal today.

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.

Bright - 4000B 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.

Pet Portrait Panel Wonder

A beautiful shaped and crafted panel invited me to get busy, thinking and creating in new ways! The surface had just enough texture to grab my acrylics. And the end result was a beautiful double pet portrait for a good friend! One added bonus for the recipient--no framing, ready to hang! Thanks, Trekell, for making it classy, inspirational and easy!

Opal brushes

I haven’t tried any of your actual hog bristle brushes yet, but I think these Opal brushes fit my needs perfectly. They are durable, stiff yet springy and clean up exceptional well. They hold their edge longer than most brushes I’ve used in the past.

Trekell Opal Long Flats

I absolutely love the Trekell Opal Long flats! They were recommended to me by a couple of artists. I am using these for oil paint but they would be awesome for acrylic also. I love the nice straight edges that give precise lines where needed. They are keeping their shape and wash up beautifully and they did not break the bank!! I am super pleased with these brushes and I will definitely be coming back for more sizes and shapes!! Thank you, Trekell!

Great for texture as well as detail

Great! A new favorite a crush from Trekell. Lays down plenty of paint but holds it's point and allows a level of precision when needed that is not available with other bristle brushes.
