Other tips

  • The quality of hair and the manufacture process make a big difference in how a brush holds and distributes paint, and how it retains its shape and spring.
  • Try starting with just a few brushes, then invest in different sizes, shapes, and styles as you learn what you need.
  • Always feel free to ask at The Art League Store if you need help selecting the right brush for the job. Our supply store is staffed by working artists.
