Welcome to dickblick
The Princeton Velvetouch is more than a new brush, it is next-generation technology!
Containing a blend of luxurious NextGen synthetic filaments, Princeton Velvetouch Series 3950 Synthetic Brushes are the ultimate mixed media tool for watercolors, acrylics, and oil paints. The Velvetouch line includes a full range of traditional shapes, plus specialty brushes such as long rounds with exceptionally sharp points, oval mops, script liners, and spotters for precise painting and maximum color control.
The NextGen synthetic filament in Velvetouch brushes is the result of seven years of research and development by Naohide Takamoto, a fifth-generation brushmaker and the grandson of the inventor of Taklon, the first artist-grade synthetic brush hair. Takamoto continues to dedicate himself to the development of synthetics that outperform their natural hair equivalents.
Every Princeton Velvetouch Series 3950 Synthetic Brush has a soft-finish wood handle to complement the enhanced performance and experience of the Velvetouch filaments, resulting in a brush that feels as good in the hand as it does when applying paint to paper, canvas, and other surfaces.
Velvetouch Brushes, Set of 4
This set includes a Round 4, Long Round 8, Angle Shader 3/8", and a Wash 3/4", all with short handles.
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.

Good Syntheitc Brushes
By Jean Lurssen
from Sausalito, CA
I have three of these brushes and still fall back on using them even though I have a number of kolinsky brushes. They are among the best synthetic brushes. They hold a lot of water and the rounds have nice points. I have used the 2" flat as a wash brush for many years. It works better on hot-pressed paper than my kolinsky brush.
from Sarasota, Florida
I love theses brushes for their points and overall responsiveness.I have been using them for about 3 months and definitely recommend them.

Comments about Princeton Velvetouch Oval Mop Brush:
This brush is perfect for wetting backgrounds with water, it holds lots and lots of water!
from Northampton, MA
I use these for oil painting and recommend them to my students. They are soft and cover the canvas well. They clean up well with turpentine or alcohol and hold their shape. The price is very reasonable too. I like to use flats best. Wish they came in larger sizes.
Am happy with these so far
from muldrow, ok
The metal piece seems tight and not coming loose because they are crimping them deeper. Most other brushes they work loose. I like that about them.

I paint with angled brushes
from San Antonio, TX
Comments about Princeton Velvetouch Angular Shader Brushes:
I paint with small angled brushes as they give me crisp edges and line work. I like this brush very much as it also does the double duty of shading well and holding paint.

Comments about Princeton Velvetouch Spotter Brush:
I do work on very small scale figure models and this type of tool is absolutely indispensable. Washes us and re-uses great. Just take good care of your brushes and they will continue to serve you well.

Comments about Princeton Velvetouch Round Brushes:
It's become my favorite.
These brushes are fantastic!
from Kapa'a, Hawaii
I have recently been painting Milky Way and astral themed paintings with oil and for a while was in the market for super smooth brushes to get the shading the way I like it. These brushes have hit the mark perfectly! Super smooth, great blending and washing. I'm stoked on them. If only they didn't sell so fast, I would have more small size angle shaders. In fact, that is my only complaint.. they are out of stock too often!
