Nova is a soft synthetic fiber, perfect for fine detail in oil painting. And unlike natural fiber, it can withstand the effects of acrylic paints and cleaning agents when oil media techniques are used in acrylic painting.
Unique Nova brushes have small ridges that run along the filaments. By slowing down the flow of liquid from the brush, they enable the brush to retain color or medium for longer time periods.
Brushes have nickel-plated, seamless brass ferrules.
Nova, Set of 3 for Oils (#5276) — This three-brush trial set contains one Series 1670 Round in size 1, one Series 1870 Bright in size 4, and one Series 1875 Filbert size 4.
Note — Brush sizes are not standardized. The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size varies considerably by manufacturer. Since fine art brushes are hand crafted, expect some variation even among brushes from a given manufacturer.
Long and Short Handles — Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water media.
