Made of student-grade white nylon synthetic fibers, Grumbacher Academy brushes are superb for oil and acrylic work. They’re soft-bristled, sleek, and ideal for any acrylic technique, including glazing, but they excel at fine detail work and applications where minimizing strokes is a must.
Bright and Flat — A Bright is a short flat brush that absorbs less color and has a stiffer stroke. A Flat is longer than a Bright and is consequently more flexible at the tip.
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.
