Winsor & Newton Artists Oil Brushes
Artists' Oil is Winsor & Newton's highest quality hog brush range. Handcrafted using the finest interlocked Chungking bristles.The natural curve of the bristle provides excellent spring and is extremely resilient, retaining its shape far longer than other brushes. The brushes are stiff, the bristles flagged (i.e. split at the ends) allowing large amounts of colour to be carried and applied evenly to the surface. The uniquely crafted handle offers great balance and control.
Brights: Length and width of brush is generally squared. Similar to flats, but shorter hairs make a stiffer brush.
Egbert/Long Filbert: The Classic Egbert is a filbert with extra-long hair. This is a more traditional brush used by the Old Masters, typically for oil painting.
Filberts: Create a softer edge than a flat or bright.
Flats: Longer hairs than a bright, this brush has more flex and a large color carrying capability.
Rounds: Smaller sizes are typically used for detail work and larger sizes tend to be used for washes and filling in color.
