Types of acrylic paint brushes & oil paint brushes

 

Hog bristle brushes: these brushes have stiff, coarse natural hair that is great at holding colour. They can be used for basecoats, heavy-bodied paints and for adding texture. Although they’re great for acrylics, we highly recommend these as oil paint brushes.

 

Taklon acrylic brushes: made from man-made fibres, taklon brushes are ideal for both acrylic and oil paintings. 

 

Stiff synthetic brushes: due to their synthetic fibres, these brushes are great at retaining their shape. When used, the paint glides easily off the hairs and they offer fantastic control. 

 

Synthetic & mongoose brushes: made from synthetic hairs, these brushes offer a blending bristle that is finer and less dense than sable brushes. They’re also able to hold their shape well and respond to your touch.

FAQs

What brush should I use for acrylic paint?

This depends on what you’re painting and the effect you wish to create. However, you can use hog bristle, taklon and other synthetic brushes for acrylic paintings.

 

Do I wet the paint brush before using acrylic?

You can start with a dry brush, but it’s recommended that you wet your acrylic brush first. This will help the paint to go on smoother and will prevent you using more paint than necessary.

 

What brushes to use with oil paint?

For oil paintings, we highly recommend hog bristle and stiff synthetic brushes, but you can still use taklon and other synthetic brushes.

 

Can you use synthetic brushes for oil painting?

Absolutely! You can use both natural and synthetic oil paint brushes for your oil painting. 

 

How do I clean up my oil painting brushes?

Most artists use an odourless solvent, as it’s a low toxic alternative to traditional, industrial solvents. There are also a number of other solvent free options available for artists wishing to use more eco friendly options.
