Utrecht Natural Chungking Pure Bristle Brushes are handmade using only the highest-quality natural Chinese Chungking Hog Bristles.
The naturally curved bristles in these brushes are cupped with interlocking construction, which provides better control and excellent shape retention. The tips of the hairs are flagged or split, promoting even strokes and superior paint-holding capacity.
The naturally strong, stiff bristles make Utrecht Series 209 brushes ideal for use with heavy-bodied acrylics, oil paints, and for impasto brushwork.
The nickel-plated seamless ferrules are securely fastened with deep double crimps onto long brown hardwood handles.
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.
