Escoda Primera Teijin is a maroon-colored synthetic with thicker and stiffer fibers for work with heavier bodied paints. Primera Teijin is especially recommended for heavy body acrylics and water mixable oils, because the synthetic fibers will not absorb water and soften with use.
The Teijin fiber holds its shape extremely well with fantastic spring. Escoda specially cures each brush for increased resiliency and versatility, making it a pleasure to use. Although not as firm as most synthetic bristle, Teijin fibers are much stiffer than Escoda Tadami or synthetic sable.
The long black lacquered handle offers plenty of control on canvas and is secured to the nickel ferrule with Escoda's exclusive triple crimping process.
Escoda is unusual for offering most sizes of the Primera Teijin line in both a long- and short-handle format. The long-handle style is for easel style painting, while the short handle style is best for horizontal work, such as on a tabletop. Many artists use a combination of both long- and short-handle brushes, especially for acrylic media.
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.

Small, beautiful brush
from Davenport, Iowa
Comments about Escoda Primera Teijin Synthetic Long Handle:
This is a beautifully made brush. However, the sizing is small as compared to other brushes (Silverbrush, for example). Functionally, the brush works well. It loads up with oil paint nicely and has good spring to the bristles.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Escoda Primera Teijin Synthetic Filbert:
This brush is beautifully made. The first thing I noticed however, is how small it was. I didn't pay attention to the sizing. I just assumed that a #1 brush was universal. Mea culpa.It is nice for detail work. The bristles have good spring (it doesn't feel like you're painting with a feather) and oil paint loads into the brush nicely. Given the size though, they are on the expensive side.
Great--one of my favorite
from Pittsburgh, PA
I have 24 filbert and a 30 bright. These brushes are wonderful. They are not as nice as the Modernista, but they are nicer than the da Vinci Top-acryl.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Edmond, OK
Comments about Escoda Primera Teijin Synthetic Bright:
Size 20. Nice brush for acrylic landscape painting. Shape is like a cross between a filbert and a bright, but if you push down a little, it flattens to a typical bright contour. Holds a sharp edge. Not as stiff as some others, but not floppy. Good for blending. More expensive than some others of similar quality.
Holds It's Point

Comments about Escoda Primera Teijin Synthetic Round:
I've used this brush in a size 1 for drawing on canvas with very thick Bombay India Ink and it holds it's point and firmness very well--even better than a fine sable brush. I'm going to use it for fine detail with oils on canvas, and I fully expect it to perform the same: perfect for fine details and drawing fine lines.

I used this brush in an oil portrait for detail work. Great brush. What I like about it is it holds its shape. Will order more!

The only brushes I use to paint with
I use these with my water-soluble oil paints and they hold up really well. I don't like a real thick brush because it won't hold a sharp edge like these do. I wash them with warm water and Old Masters Brush cleaner only. I learned the hard way that dish soap destroys the bristles on a brush.
Tried them all....
I have tried all the Escoda. The 1950 Teijin really hold up. I used them with acrylics and water soluble oils.

Use with Heavy Acrylics
from Harrington Park NJ
The Escoda Primera is a wonderful find for my acrylic painting needs - I have been searching for a brush that would hold its point over time of use and cleaning. My style is photorealist wildlife art and the paint holding is very good for such a refined shape. One can lay down a very clean line of paint. The snap of the brush is excellent not as stiff as bristle, or even synthetic mongoose, yet stiffer than white taklon...a great balance. The filaments clean very well with water or brush cleaners for tougher needs. These brushes are now my main stay for the majority of my work along with a softer filament brush collection (currently Loew-Cornell, La Corneille) to round things out. I highly recommend these brushes as an excellent price and performance option in a quality brush
