Paint Brushes


      For hobbyists and artists alike, choosing the right paint brushes can be just as important as the paint they use. A carefully crafted brush can make all the difference in the final product of a painting or project. When considering paintbrushes for hobby work, it's important to think about the type of paint you will be working with and the desired effect you want to achieve.

      What Are the Differences Between Natural Hair and Synthetic Hair Paint Brushes?

      As a modeller, the right paint brush can make all the difference in the world to your level of enjoyment when putting your model together and your satisfaction with the end product.

      When it comes to choosing between natural hair and synthetic hair paint brushes, there are a few key differences to consider. 

      Natural hair brushes, typically made from animal hair such as sable, are known for their softness and flexibility. They hold more paint and provide smoother brushstrokes, making them ideal for watercolour or acrylic painting. 

      On the other hand, synthetic hair brushes are great for heavier paint applications and tend to last longer. They're also often more affordable. 

      Ultimately, the choice between natural and synthetic brushes depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you’re not sure which is the better option for you and your project plans, feel free to contact our team today.
