Nova Synthetics differ from other golden synthetics in their enhanced ability to hold water and color. Many other golden synthetics are glass smooth, but Nova synthetics use golden synthetic filaments of three different diameters with tiny ridges along the fibers that slow down the flow of water or color off the brush. These filaments have been specially shaped and tapered to adapt to the qualities of synthetic rather than natural hair.

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.
