Synthetic Oil Brushes


Blick offers a large selection of synthetic oil brushes for artists of all experience levels, from students and beginning oil painters to seasoned professionals. Due to recent advancements in synthetic oil brush technology, most synthetic brushes for oil painting have the same working properties and perform as well as or better than their natural counterparts. Synthetic oil paintbrushes are divided into soft, medium, and firm categories for ease of comparison, and include different types of taklon (golden, white, and brown), white and brown nylon, proprietary synthetic blends, and other fiber types, in the same sizes and shapes as natural oil brushes. The brush fibers in oil paintbrushes are generally stiffer and firmer than those found in watercolor brushes, although many of these brushes can also be used with water-mixable oils, acrylics, gouache, watercolors, and other types of paints and mediums. Brushes for oil painting usually have long handles so the artist can work at a distance from the canvas, although most brush lines also include short-handled brushes.
