click image to zoom in
Princeton’s Umbria Brushes feature synthetic fibers with an extra degree of stiffness to move and control color. Unlike natural bristles, which become soft and distorted when used in waterbased media, the bristles on these brushes retain their shape and stiffness.
Each brush includes two shades of synthetic fiber, seamless gold colored ferrules, and a Velvetouch handle for excellent grip and control. They can be used with heavier acrylic paints as well as oils and waterbased oil colors.
Long and Short Handles - Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water 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.
