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.

Perfect for oils

Hands down my favorite line of brushes. These have the perfect snap to them that�s not too soft and not too stiff. They will hold a thick stroke or lay down a thin wash without leaving strong bristle marks like a hog bristle brush does. When used on their edge they create a nice sharp line. I�m not meticulous about cleaning, I just give them a good wash in Gamsol, dry with a towel, reshape the bristles and lay flat and they hold their shape really well and have lasted without a lot of wear in spite of the abuse I put them through. Highest recommendations!

Oh my gosh, I looove these brushes! They are just the perfect length for me, that is they are long enough to hold some paint, but not so long that I lose control of where it's going. They clean up nicely and hold their points. I'm gushing, but I'm not a gusher! These are great for oil painters!
