What paint brushes do professionals use?
Price is usually the best indicator when selecting a professional brush, but generally speaking most of our individual brushes are professional range and the more affordable options come in packs.
What are the best paint brushes to buy?
Buy the best you can afford, as a good brush makes a huge difference!
What type of brush should I use for painting?
The brush you should use depends on the artwork you’re creating and the effect you’re after! If you’re doing a watercolour, oil or acrylic painting, you’ll need to choose a brush that works best for that paint. Generally speaking, the thicker the paint the stiffer the brush, which means thinner paints will need a softer brush. This is no hard rule, but it’s a good guide.
Likewise, if you’re after big brushstrokes, opt for a brush with large bristles. To create finer details, you’ll need smaller bristles.
