Bristlette is ideal for acrylics. Incorporating the working properties of good bristle and the holding qualities of red sable, Bristlette brushes are resilient and durable. They respond to vigorous painting, are excellent for massing color, and, in the smaller sizes, give the artist great control. They also work well with oil colors, saving wear and tear on the more fragile sable brushes.
Filbert Brush: Also called a cat’s tongue due to the flat, oval edge. Creates a softer edge than a flat or bright, and is used for blending particularly because the bristles stick together well when wet.
