These brushes are made out of a high quality multi-diameter synthetic fiber blend designed for control and firmness through the stroke. They have the ability to be double loaded and triple loaded with color and cover a wide area making for more uniform large applications. Use them for layering one color over another, over glazing, faux texturing and many other effects along with the traditional use of loading color for mural paintings or for backgrounds on large size paintings. You can easily push paint evenly and surely through the stroke without any problem. They have been developed and tested by professional painters. Set in nickel plated brass ferrules attached to short, easy to grip, paddle handles.
