Oil Brush Sets
Blick offers a large selection of natural and synthetic oil brush sets for professional oil painters (Studio Oil Brush Sets), and for students and beginning artists (Student Oil Brush Sets). Natural oil brushes include sable and sable blends, bristle, ox, fitch, and other natural hair. Synthetic oil brushes, which have the same working properties as natural hair brushes, include different types of taklon (golden, white, or brown), white and brown nylon, synthetic blends, and other fiber types.
The brushes in these sets traditionally have long handles for working at a distance from the canvas, although some sets also contain short-handled brushes. The brush fibers in oil paintbrushes are generally firmer and stiffer than those found in watercolor brushes, although many brushes used for oil painting can also be used with watercolors, acrylics, water-mixable oils, gouache, and other types of paints and mediums.
