Shop for Animal Friendly Brushes

Finding high quality synthetic brushes has long been a challenge for watercolor painters or vegan artists. Now Creative Mark has partnered with a leading synthetic hair manufacturer to craft cruelty free brushes with all the benefits of natural hair, and none of the drawbacks!


Black Swan brushes are the animal-friendly alternative to red sable brushes. Their synthetic black bristles feature a highly soft, yet strong and durable texture. They offer excellent color retention and control, along with effortless color application. These brushes include seamless ferrules, which are crafted from nickel-plated brass. Black Swan’s lightweight, wooden handles are easily recognizable among other brushes, as they feature a matte-black surface, with a gloss-black tip. These brushes work perfectly with oil color and acrylic paints, and are very easy to maintain. A portion of all proceeds from this line of brushes will be donated to helping protect wild animals.


New Mimik Synthetic Brushes feature a revolutionary synthetic hair that accurately mimics a blend of natural squirrel and Kolinsky sable hair, but without harming any animals. This innovative synthetic blend imitates squirrel hair in its ability to hold copious amounts of color for large washes and color lay down, but also features the superb control, response and sharp edge so loved in Kolinsky sable brushes. With short, blue-grey stained wooden handles and matte nickel-plated brass ferrules, Mimik brushes are available in Round, Rigger, Filbert, Flat Wash and Wash Mate shapes, as well as a convenient value pack. Finally, a watercolor brush with the color capacity of squirrel, the fine point of sable, and the satisfaction of knowing that no animal was endangered in the making of the brush!


The Escoda Versatil Synthetic Kolinsky Brushes feature an exceptional snap, superior absorption and incredible fluid retention. This brush has been field tested worldwide by artists and their feedback exceeded all expectations. They agree that Versatil has the feel and spring of a high-quality kolinsky sable brush, as well as a perfect point.
