Super stiff, but truly responsive bristles!

Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes are another Princeton breakthrough that advances the science of synthetic hair. This new series is super stiff yet still extremely responsive. Unlike natural hog bristle, Catalyst has real integrity in water. Natural bristle can be rendered useless when it is water-soaked.The true advance in Catalyst is the Polytip feature. For the first time, the tip of each individual hair has been split to replicate the natural flags on the finest natural bristle. By giving each individual hair 2 to 3 distinct tips, Catalyst is able to hold a higher volume of paint while providing a smoother application.Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oil paints, Catalyst pushes even heavy gel mediums with assurance. Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes truly are tools that move paint.

Key Features:
  • Stiff and responsive synthetic bristles
  • High paint load
  • Even application
  • Seamless ferrule
Perfect For:
  • Medium to heavy bodied acrylics, heavy gel mediums and oil colour application 
  • Unaltered results when bristles are completely soaked in water

Princeton Catalyst Polytip Bristle Long Handle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bristle brushes - nice & firm with a thinner blade-like tip than other bristles I've used I have only used the flat and bright shapes, but they're the best of any brand I've used. (Can't speak for the other shapes, don't really use anything else). They're exactly what I've been needing - each individual bristle seems to be much firmer than traditional hogs hair bristles, meaning the same amount of stiffness requires fewer bristles, resulting in a thinner profile brush. The tip ends up being a much thinner, sharper blade-like edge because it doesn't need as many bristles to be nice and stiff. And still it has just the right amount of flexibility if I press a little harder. The price is not dirt cheap, because they're a pro quality brush, but they're not too expensive either. These are very sleek and professional brushes, and as a painting professional it's well worth the investment. FYI, I use these brushes in water-soluble oils or traditional oils, with a nice cleaning of Bristle Magic brush cleaner afterward. -Christopher Clark, professional fine artist

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected. Since becoming a began I'm slowly weaning myself off of all animal products including hog bristle brushes. Most synthetics that I've tried in the past really had a totally different feel and I used them sparingly. This brushes however, while not having the same feel as bristle, really don't feel like regular synthetics. The flats work greta (I'm using them with oils) and I'm anxious to try the filberts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good synthetic brush! Three years ago, I bought the number six angular brush for the backgrounds in my bird paintings, and when I started to use it, I was amazed with the results! The brush held up to my soho acrylic's very good, and the bristles didn't spray out like that of the many bristle brushes I have in my kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great firm synthetic brushes! These brushes are great if you want to really push some paint around! They are especially useful with water-mixable oils because they are synthetic and natural bristle brushes don't last long when you use them with water. The brushes are firm but flexible too. I was having trouble with other synthetic brushes because they were all too soft. But these brushes are pretty darn perfect! I'm not sure how they would be with other media, but with water-mixable oils, they are the best I've been able to find. I plan to buy more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of My New Go-To Brush Styles! Princeton Brush - Catalyst Polytip Bristle Long Handle -- I was looking for something comparable to my favorite Bristlon brushes and/or my other favorite Monarch brushes -- Princeton Catalyst Polytip Brushes are like a combination of the two! Princeton Catalyst Polytip Brushes MAY just replace my Winsor Newton Monarchs -- I am still testing at this time!
