Exploring Acrylic Brushes

Our range of Professional Acrylic brushes are designed to suit different purposes, this video outlines which brush to use depending on the marks you want to make. The Utility brush is ideal for preparing your surface with gesso, for painting out an even, coloured ground and for glazing. The Bright brushes provide a square tip which is perfect for creating sharp edges, whilst the Filbert has an oval rounded tip for broad, softer marks. The Fan is designed for blending and softening edges whilst the Round is used to make consistent linear marks. When starting your painting, consider which brush will be best suited to create the marks you wish to achieve.
