Bristle Brushes

Bristle Brushes are unlike any other natural filler brushes in that they form a V-shaped split or "flag" at the tip and tend to have a natural curve. A brush with "interlocked" bristles, with the curves formed inward to the ferrule, has a natural resistance to fraying and spreads medium to thick paints smoothly and evenly.

Hog Bristle is obtained from hogs in several parts of the world, the most sought after coming from China. A selection of pure hog bristle brushes is recommended for oil and acrylic painting, and is a far less expensive alternative to good-quality softer hairs.
