Welcome to dickblick
Utrecht Natural Chungking Pure Bristle Brushes are handmade using only the highest-quality natural Chinese Chungking Hog Bristles.
The naturally curved bristles in these brushes are cupped with interlocking construction, which provides better control and excellent shape retention. The tips of the hairs are flagged or split, promoting even strokes and superior paint-holding capacity.
The naturally strong, stiff bristles make Utrecht Series 209 brushes ideal for use with heavy-bodied acrylics, oil paints, and for impasto brushwork.
The nickel-plated seamless ferrules are securely fastened with deep double crimps onto long brown hardwood handles.
Set of 4
This brush set includes a versatile selection of four outstanding Natural Chungking Pure Bristle Brushes. It includes a Flat #10, a Flat #12, a Filbert #6, and a Round #4. This brush set is great for an oil or an acrylic painter.
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.
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.

Brush sheds bristles!
from Sharon, MA
Comments about Utrecht Natural Chungking Pure Bristle Round:
I was very disappointed with this brush. The Utrecht Tuscan Synthetics are great, but these Utrecht Natural Chungking Pure Bristles are awful. I had bush bristles shedding all over my oil painting and had to pick them out!
Maybe for the right type of work light thick paint? Show brush marks badly.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. Like hog bristle brushes in general, these Utrecht brushes are best for a painterly style with medium to high viscosity paint, as the stiff bristles will impart a visibly textured stroke. If you ever have questions on brushes or the applications they're best suited for, please don't hesitate to give our product specialists a call or send us an email. Our Product Information Department is available from 8 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and we're always eager to help!

Hog vs Synthetics
from Rockville, MD
Hard to beat for acrylics. Take a beating but keep on working.
from Brooklyn, NY
Nice brush. I like Utrecht for quality and price. Bristles are on a medium to low hardness side. Very useful!
Good brush and value
Great value for workhorse brush.
