Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Brushes I've been using these brushes for a month now and they perform very well. In fact, I left one in my water bucket over night accidentally and was sure it would be ruined. Nope, I dried it off and stored it as I do my others after using and it shows no signs of damage.

What is the difference between Princeton Aqua Elite and Elite brushes? I thought the Aqua brushes were an upgrade and just bought some from you, but are they the same? I bought some Elite brushes from you in Nov 2017. I think I screwed up!

I was recommended Princeton series 4050. What is the difference between the 4850 and the 4050 series?

Asked by: Mjhadley
Princeton’s flagship brush. More than 20 years ago, Heritage™ Series 4050 was the first synthetic sable to be offered to artists. A perfect blend of golden taklon in multiple diameters, Hertiage was developed for Princeton by master Japanese brush-maker Naohide Takamoto, the “Tak” in “taklon.” This brush drinks up gulps of water, paints supple strokes and has a natural snap. 4850 Kolinsky Sable Painting Brushes have long been recognized as the standard of excellence, a comparative benchmark of how other natural and synthetic watercolor painting brushes perform. Elite™ is a new synthetic-hair paint brush that is almost indistinguishable from natural Kolinsky. It is a challenge to see the difference. Aside from the more affordable price, it is the performance of this new synthetic hair paint brush technology that makes Princeton Elite™ the new standard for discerning watercolor painting artists. Both brushes are synthetic with 4050 more of a taklon and 4850 acts like a kolinsky sable. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
