  • ROUND BRUSH

    A round paint brush is the most traditional brush shape, and what most people imagine when they think "art paint brush". A decent round brush will come to a lovely sharp point, enabling you to paint fine lines and detail with it. (This is especially true if it's a brush made with top-quality Kolinsky sable hair.) Look for one that's got a good spring in the bristles, where they snap straight when you take the pressure off the brush.

    The round brush in the photo has synthetic hair in it, and didn't have a very fine point even when it was brand new. But I bought it as it would be useful for creating broad brushstrokes as it's very soft and holds a good quantity of fluid paint. Always consider what you intend to do with the brush; don't have unrealistic expectations of it or you'll just frustrate yourself (and blame your tools for poor painting).

  • FLAT BRUSHES

    A flat brush is, as the name would suggest, one where the bristles are arranged so the brush is quite wide but not very thick. The length of the bristles can vary, with some flat brushes having long and some very short bristles. (The latter is also called a square brush.) When buying a flat brush, look for one where the bristles have a spring to them, or snap back when you bend them gently.

    Not only will a flat brush create a broad brushstroke, but if you turn it so you're leading with the narrow edge, it'll produce thin brushstrokes. A short flat brush is ideal for small, precise brushmarks.

    A flat brush's paint carrying capacity is determined by the bristles it has, and by the length of these. A short-haired, synthetic-bristle flat brush will hold less paint than a long-haired, mixed or natural-hair brush. The flat brush in the photo has got hog hair, which holds paint well and, being stiff, is ideal for leaving brushmarks in paint should you wish to do this.

  • fan brushes

    THE FIRST TIME YOU SEE A FAN BRUSH, YOU'LL INSTANTLY KNOW WHY IT'S CALLED THIS. IT'S A THIN FLAT BRUSH WITH THE SPREAD OUT IN A SEMI-CIRCLE, LIKE A HAND-HELD PAPER FAN. THE METAL FERRULE HOLDS THE HAIRS IN THIS SHAPE. EVEN WHEN WET, THE HAIRS STAY SPREAD OUT, AND WON'T COME TOGETHER TO FORM A POINT. MANY ARTISTS USE FAN BRUSHES ONLY FOR BLENDING COLORS, BUT THEY'RE ALSO EXTREMELY USEFUL FOR MARK-MAKING. THE TYPES OF MARKS YOU GET IN THE PAINT WITH A FAN BRUSH DEPENDS ON WHETHER IT'S ONE WITH COARSE HAIR OR WITH SOFT, AND HOW MUCH PAINT YOU'VE GOT ON THE BRUSH.

  • WASH BRUSH

    Camlin White Bristle Brushes are made out high quality nature beistles and provide optimum power to draw and spread of colour. These brushes allows the artist to cover large areas with thick colours effortlessly.

  • CATS TOUNGE BRUSH

    Its unusual shape lends itself to the name "Cat's Tongue." This brush is really three brushes in one. Paint with the point for fine lines, with the side for medium strokes, and with the flat side of the brush for washes and large areas.The Cat's Tongue has super soft, pure squirrel hair set in a seamless, nickel-plated ferrule on a short, lacquered handle

  • ANGULAR BRUSH

    Angular brush is also a Flat but it has an angular chisel or brush tip. This means it will hold less paint and water, so you can’t get good continuous flow.On the very positive side, this is THE brush for doing tight shading and highlighting. And it is especially coveted by artists who love to paint roses and flowers because they can get into all those little nooks and crannies. So, if you’re painting a realistic rose, consider trying this brush. 

  • FILBERT BRUSH

    A filbert is a flat brush but it has a chiseled rounded edge instead of a straight one. Sort of like a cat’s tongue. When you look at the brush from the chiseled edge, the hairs should form an even oval edge.

    As a tool for basecoating, these types of paint brushes can't be beat! The shape of the hairs eliminates ridges. It can be used for side-loading similarly to a flat brush to create shades and highlights.

    It's also used for blending. And because it can hold a fair amount of water, it’s also great for applying washes of color. And lastly, because of its shape it’s perfectly suited for doing leaves, flower petals and bird feathers.

  • DAGGER BRUSH

    Dagger looks like angle with longish hairs, used for one stroke painting like painting long leaves.

    These brushes require a little practice to use at first... it's like they're a filbert brush with half their bristles missing! They are terrific once you get the hang of them.Truly a multi-purpose gem. You can load the brush with multiple colors, create great ribbons and petals and do stripes all in one fell swoop!

  • DEER FOOT BRUSH

    The deerfoot stippler is also a texturing brush used for creating fur and foliage. It's round and the bristles are long on the toe and short on the heel, bringing to mind the shape of Bambi's foot.

    You should pick a deerfoot that has a lot of texture in its bristles over one that's stiff and neatly formed. You can use these brushes either wet or dry.The amount of pressure you apply during the pouncing or stippling will determine the overall look and color value of your painting. 

  • SPONGE BRUSH

    Sponge Brush  is similar to the dabbing technique, but rather than using a brush, you tear pieces from a kitchen cellulose sponge, and dab the paint on with a piece of sponge. The texture of the sponge gives a nice, irregular pattern that closely resembles foliage.

  • LONG HAIR ROUND BRUSH
  • LONG HAIR FLAT BRUSH
  • MOP BRUSH

    A mop brush is designed for gentle blending and softening. Used with a light touch, these types of paint brushes can quickly blur and soften a hard edge.Mops come in a variety of shapes. Some resemble a make-up (blush) brush. Others are flatter and stiffer. These are the ones we prefer to use.
