Da Vinci Nova Synthetic Brushes

The unique blend of different widths and lengths of synthetic fiber in Da Vinci Nova Synthetic Brushes enhances their color-carrying capacity. Each brush provides clean, even brushstrokes when used with oils, acrylics, watercolors, for mixed media, and for face and body painting. Sold in more than 90 countries, Nova Synthetics are the world’s top-selling brush for body painting.

With fibers that are specially tapered to mimic the qualities of synthetic rather than natural hair, Nova Synthetics are extremely responsive for brushes in this price range. They provide unexpected elasticity and shape retention even after heavy use. Plus, they’re easy to clean.

Da Vinci Nova Synthetic Brushes are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes with both short and long handles. All feature nickel-plated, seamless, rust-resistant brass ferrules, fitted to wood handles sustainably harvested from European forests.

Nova, Set of 10 — Da Vinci Nova Series 1670 and 1870 brushes feature extra-fine synthetic fibers that are especially suited for painting with liquid colors. The set contains 10 brushes, including Series 1670 Rounds in size 1, 2, and 6, and Series 1870 Brights in size 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16.

Nova Retouch (Series 5575) — Retouch brushes have the shape of a Round, but short fiber length and an extremely sharp point for maximum control. They are suitable for all waterbased media, including acrylic. Use them for placing small amounts of color very precisely. Another name for a Retouch brush is a Detailer.

Nova Showcard Long Round (Series 1175) — The Showcard brush was an advertising sign painter's brush, longer and with a fuller belly to hold more color. Nova Series 1175 brushes are extra long and have a more elastic point than typical rounds.

Nova, Set of 3 for Oils (#5276) — This three-brush trial set contains one Series 1670 Round in size 1, one Series 1870 Bright in size 4, and one Series 1875 Filbert size 4.

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.
