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.

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 handmade, 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.
