Welcome to dickblick
Princeton's long handle synthetic bristle brush has excellent stiffness, snap, and hair shape retention for maximum control. It's easier to clean than natural bristle. It's recommended for use with heavier paints.
Used for blending and figurative work, this top-grade synthetic hair holds and absorbs more paint and stands up to heavy body acrylics, and water-soluble oils.
It possesses the same stiffness as natural bristle, however, unlike its natural counterpart it retains its shape and stiffness.
Each brush features a rich, distinctive gold ferrule and black lacquered wood handle.
Dakota Pro Series Brushes, Set of 4
Includes one each of Bright 6, Flat 10, Filbert 4, and Round 2.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.
™ Princeton is a trademark.

I Love These Brushes
from Rockford, Il
Comments about Princeton Best Synthetic Bristle Brushes Series 6300:
I put best in catagory. I really do not if its the best for its catagory but, certainly one of the best I've used and I've used brushes of all kinds.I paint with acrylics and 'paint' colored pencils. By painting colored pencils, I use something like gamasol and use a brush to paint like regular painting. I'm not so much for the blending pencils.I like a brush to have some firmness but, also spring and snap. Something that is easy in the area of control. I like Bristles but, they lose shape too fast. And alot of the synthetics do not feel right while painting.But, these...These are wonderful. The control is there that you can do so much more with them. Even with the lack of #0 or #1 in rounds for detail, the #2 works great. I can get better detail then I have with other brushes.They snap back right away without being really stiff. You can make them do what you want.They are definitely one of the nicest and best brushes I have used.I plan on picking up more this week.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Princeton Series 6300 Dakota Synthetic Bristle Round:
I use it with acrylic paint. The paint just glides on the canvas.
Nice for water misable oils
By Green Mountain Art Girl
These are medium stiff. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the stiffest brushes I have found, these are a 7.Perfect for blending work for an impressionistic style.
Best lifting brush
from Santa Cruz
As a watercolorist, I use this brush to lift paint. It work wonderfully and if used judiciously leaves the paper relatively unscathed.
Very good with acrylic!
I really like the brush, feels smooth and flexible.

Very good brushes that mimic bristle but retain shape. I use primarily flats and brights for scrubbing in large value shapes in the first pass of the painting. Can still work well for details and refinement but that might depend on the kind of surface you are using and the style of painting you do. I also wash with masters brush cleaner, which seems to prolong the life of all of my brushes. I end up grabbing for these brushes a lot, so would recommend.

Best VEGAN choice for a synthetic Bristle brush!
By Dee Dee
from Strasburg, VA
Comments about Princeton Series 6300 Dakota Synthetic Bristle Filbert:
I've always loved filbert brushes. Naturally I have a variety of brushes but the filbert is my favorite. As I've grown older, I've become even more aware of how precious our natural resources are and have been leaning toward the vegan choices in life including my art supplies. I'm pleased to find quality brushes that meet that requirement.

The filbert brush enables the painterly approach.

Best. Brushes. Ever.
By R J Bechtel
I have had some of these Princeton brushes since college (I'm in my 50's now) and they still hold their shape really well. If you take care of these brushes, they'll last you a lifetime!
