The Paintbrush

The paintbrush acts as the extension of the painter's hand, since it's thanks to it that colors are applied to the canvas and the work takes shape. It's made up of a handle and brush of natural or synthetic hairs or bristles.

Certain paintbrushes use a mixture of the two types of bristles, an amalgam combining the best features of each. In fact, it turns out that animal hairs are very supple and endowed with excellent retention, while synthetic hairs can be easily cleaned and resist wear and tear. Over and beyond the quality of materials, it's the disposition of the bristles that determines the final quality of a paintbrush.
