Mastering Paintbrush Bristle: An Expert Guide

Understanding the pivotal role of bristles in paintbrushes is key to mastering your painting technique. Bristles influence not just the physical application of paint but also the final appearance of your artwork. Let's explore the critical aspects of bristle selection:

  1. Optimal Paint Absorption: The ability of a brush to absorb and hold paint correlates with the bristle type. Innovative synthetic bristles have been designed to mimic the natural flagging of traditional bristles, offering efficient paint absorption without the high cost. Consider options such as:

    • Innovate E (30% PBT/70% PET) for standard use,
    • Innovate 2 (60% PBT/40% PET) for enhanced quality,
    • Innovate A (90% PBT/10% PET) for top-tier performance.
