Welcome to dickblick
Utrecht Manglon Synthetic Brushes (Series 239) are constructed with unique multi-colored, multi-diameter synthetic Taklon. Each filament is tapered to a fine point, dyed, and then set into black-plated seamless brass ferrules. The ferrules are securely fastened with deep double crimping on long black lacquered handles.
Known for their excellent paint capacity, these brushes have the silky feel of fine sable, an extraordinary snap-back, and great shape retention. They work well for sharp, clean brushwork and edging with medium-bodied to heavy-bodied paints.
Available in a variety of sizes and shapes, Utrecht Manglon Synthetic Brushes are great for use with oils and acrylic paints.
Set of 4
This set includes a #4 Round, #8 Bright, #12 Filbert, and #18 Filbert.

My Go-to brushes
Comments about Utrecht Manglon Synthetic Filbert:
My painting teacher recommend these brushes to me when I first started oil painting. I've tried other brushes, but these are still my favorite and a great value. They're so good, I almost forgot they were synthetic and almost used paint thinner on the oldest ones, which would have melted them. I get the filberts in 2 4 6 and 8, and they are perfect for me. #sweepstakes

I love these brushes. i am using them for oil painting and happy that they are synthetic and animal friendly yet handle so beautifully . I especially am loving the various sized filberts.

One of the best brushes I've used for acrylics on canvas. The paint has never gone on so smooth!
Utrecht Manglon Synthetic Brushed
These brushes work well with acrylic paints. I've also used this brand with oil paints and had good results when I used them on oil primed medium weight linen.I haven't tried the brushes with watercolor, but I think they'd work well, especially if the handles were shorter.
These are my favorite!

Comments about Utrecht Manglon Synthetic Round:
These are the BEST brushes. The price is great too. I first learned of them from my studio mate over ten years ago. I was in Montana and she had graduated from NYU art school. I work in oils and need good briushes for details. Thank you! (Never change), -Sheila Miles

Hold up with heavy media, no fraying or hair loss, keeps a very nice sharp edge and shape.

Get the right size.

These are excellent brushes, in particular the smaller rounds that I used on a recent oil painting. I've not had an actual sable do a more versatile job, but I suspect these brushes would fair even better with acrylics or water mixable oils. More importantly, check the brush sizes before ordering. If brush manufacturers standardized sizing across the board, Utrecht would be a good precedent since a number 4 filbert is closer to a 4 mm. The long and short of it is, check the brush dimensions before ordering. Even so, Manglons are a good value.

Excellent brushes, very durable

Comments about Utrecht Manglon Synthetic Flat:
I bought several of these brushes in a #6 Flat size. I have been using one of them for months now and it is holding up really well. Have not needed to go to my backup. Bought several more in smaller sizes and the handle is reduced in size in relationship to the brush size. Allows for great spring and movement. These brushes have become one of my standard 'go to' studio brushes. Nice product..
