Silverwhite soft white synthetic brushes are manufactured using specially selected filaments of varying length and thickness that are blended together. This blend creates a special brush that will hold sharp edges in flats and fine needle points in rounds.
You get the spring and color-carrying capacity of the finest natural hair brush at a fraction of the price.
These brushes are suitable for use with acrylics, watercolor, gouache, water mixable oils, and all water-based media.
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.
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.

Comments about Silver Brush Silverwhite Synthetic Long Handle Filbert Series 1503:
I am a professional portrait artist. I'm also an old dawg who has been through LITERALLY hundreds of brushes in my life. Here's my best advice on brushes. Use the cheapest imported bristle junk you can find to tone your canvas and do your massing in and your underpainting. THEN switch to your precious Silverwhites to refine, glaze and finish. Silverwhites perform like fine sable. They are a JOY! They do age fairly quickly even when treated well and cleaned carefully. But if you reserve them for the later stages of your painting they will reward you with the pleasure of their lovely performance. All arts and crafts depend on quality tools.
