DA VINCI BRISTLE BRUSHES

Hog bristle, in a variety of qualities, is the work-horse of oil painting. Bristle brushes can be used for acrylic also, however they are more difficult to clean acrylic from
than synthetic.
Bristle is robust enough to resist wear on abrasive surfaces like canvas, absorbent enough to wipe back layers, and yet good quality bristle is soft enough to respond to delicate strokes. Good quality bristle will have ?split ends? called flags, so although the edge of the brush may look fuzzy, this is a good thing, as the flags are
what hold the paint.
