Our Ultimate’ range of interlocked bristle brushes offer the artist a traditional brush but with double the interlock. We take two equal amounts of best quality Chinese bristle and set them opposite each other so that the natural curve is facing inwards. The bristle is selected in length and size to enable perfect balance. Although labor intensive this gives the artist a hard wearing brush. Traditionally bristle was used by artists who required a strong loaded stroke and not precision marks. If you are looking for a ‘tighter’ brush and one that retains its shape over time then select from our synthetic ranges designed to be crisp and ‘tight’ with a clean edge- for example ‘Ivory’ ‘Evergreen’ & ‘Eclipse’.
