The Princeton Velvetouch is more than a new brush, it is next-generation technology!
Containing a blend of luxurious NextGen synthetic filaments, Princeton Velvetouch Series 3950 Synthetic Brushes are the ultimate mixed media tool for watercolors, acrylics, and oil paints. The Velvetouch line includes a full range of traditional shapes, plus specialty brushes such as long rounds with exceptionally sharp points, oval mops, script liners, and spotters for precise painting and maximum color control.
The NextGen synthetic filament in Velvetouch brushes is the result of seven years of research and development by Naohide Takamoto, a fifth-generation brushmaker and the grandson of the inventor of Taklon, the first artist-grade synthetic brush fiber. Takamoto continues to dedicate himself to the development of synthetics that outperform their natural hair equivalents.
Every Princeton Velvetouch Series 3950 Synthetic Brush has a soft-finish wood handle to complement the enhanced performance and experience of the Velvetouch filaments, resulting in a brush that feels as good in the hand as it does when applying paint to paper, canvas, and other surfaces.
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.
