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.

The long flat, like the name suggests, is a longer flat brush with a slightly convex tip resembling a chisel. Known for holding its shape, a long flat is ideal if precision and control is the goal when working with heavier paints.

as good as they get

these brushes are really responsive and work well with thick or more diluted oil paints. They allow for good caligraphic effects and hold their shape

My favorite flats for oils

I’ve tried Trekell’s natural and synthetic Hog Bristle brushes with oils, and the Opals work best for me, especially the flats. Their bristles hold great chisel ends, and I love their snap and responsiveness. Very happy with these brushes.

Wonderful brush

This brush just FEELS good! Bristles are beautifully shaped, well chiseled, and apply paint just the way I was hoping. Makes oil painting fun again, after puppies ate my good brushes and I was forced to use the sad old brushes from the "rear jar." :-)

Smooth like butter, baby.

Not the most expensive or the cheapest brush around Excellent quality and performance for the price. Holds massive amount of paint and cleans up nicely. Built to last.
