Equally well-suited for plein air and studio settings, Princeton Aspen brushes combine performance, practicality, and style.
Available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, Princeton Aspen Series 6500 Synthetic Brushes are made using synthetic bristles that possess the same stiffness as natural bristle. Unlike natural bristle, however, the brush fibers stay together regardless of the painting surface or the degree of pressure applied, allowing control and precise placement of color. Acrylics, oils, and watersoluble oils release and glide evenly off these brush fibers.
Every Aspen brush has an elegantly polished black handle made from reforested wood, and a matte black ferrule that eliminates light reflection when painting on site.
Bright and Flat - A Bright is a short flat brush that absorbs less color and has a stiffer stroke. A Flat is longer than a Bright and is consequently more flexible at the tip.
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.
