Welcome to dickblick
Princeton’s new series of synthetic hair brushes features an extra degree of stiffness to move and control color. Unlike natural bristles, which become soft and distorted when used in a water based medium, the bristles on these brushes retain their shape and stiffness.
Each brush features two shades of hair, seamless gold colored ferrules, and a Velvetouch handle for excellent grip and control. They can be used with heavier acrylic paints as well as oil and water based oil colors.
This variation on the shape of the Bright Brush is often handy for painting the upper reaches of large canvases.
This unusual "sword" shape is excellent for precise control of fine lines and curves of varying widths.
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.
™ Princeton is a trademark.

My favorite brush!
Comments about Princeton Long Handle Umbria Brushes Series 6200:
I have a round 4 (short handle) that I use for gouache. After a year or so of abuse this brush has held up well. There isn't a sharp point (although I don't remember how sharp it was when I bought it) but it's my favorite go to general brush. It's stiff enough to rework gouache, holds a good amount of color, and still has a lot of snap. The handle is also very comfortable and soft and so lightweight I've dropped it a few times while painting! I will be ordering more soon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Princeton Umbria Liner for Acrylics:
Perfect size and quality brush!
Springy and tight, but soft and responsive
from North Coast, OR
I use the Umbria brushes with oil paint and find the edge they'll hold is top notch. They have a soft feathery trail when dragged, and I like the effects I can get with that too. Top notch synthetic.
Love these brushes!

Comments about Princeton Umbria Flat Wash:
I use these for large background areas when I'm using Acrylics. They perform perfectly for smooth blending of large areas, which can certainly be a task when using fast-drying Acrylics.

This brush line is perfect for any painting situation. They are soft and durable and give me exactly what I need for my portrait work. I love the grip handle.They clean very well and keep their form.

i have tried al kins of brushes for detailing with oils and they all start to loose there shape after 2 or 3 uses. this does not happen with the umbria, they last 10 times more than others and they are not too soft and not to stiff...exelent product!
I found the perfect angle bright brush!

Comments about Princeton Umbria Angular Bright for Acrylics:
I bought one two years ago and now I order them every time. They help me to achieve fluid lines and they hold their shape for a long time. I have bought them as gifts for fellow artists. Princeton umbria brushes are the best and a great value.

Simply the best!
from Olympia, WA
I use this brush for line work and decorative detail. It keeps a full load of paint and rolls to a perfect point for line work. The hairs are flexible and it is great for making scrolls. I love it!
