With both their real and synthetic brushes, Princeton is the go-to for artists all over the world. Their innovative synthetic brushes are not only comparable to natural hair, but in many ways an improvement in terms of durability, cost, shape and absorbency. And then their real hair brushes are made from only the highest quality materials for ultimate performance and longevity.
Princeton brushes are also available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, from liners and fans, to flat, round, filbert and angled brushes.
Princeton oil brushes
When it comes to oil painting, Princeton brushes should be your very first choice. Made from natural ChungKing bristle hair, Princeton’s Refine range is handmade by skilled brushmakers and ideal for all kinds of oil artwork. Available in a range of shapes and styles, these brushes offer smooth, flexible and soft brush strokes. They also help you to control the placement of colour and unique textural qualities to your art.
If you prefer synthetic Princeton artist brushes for oil painting, then we recommend their Catalyst, Dakota and Aspen ranges. Made from super stiff synthetic fibres, these brushes are extremely responsive, last longer and hold their shape better than the natural version.
Princeton acrylic brushes
Made from synthetic fibres, a number of Princeton’s brushes are ideal for acrylic painting. They not only offer a smooth stroke and retain their stiffness, but they’re super durable – making them perfect for mixed media artists. They also come in the broadest range of shapes and hair types. Princeton Select comes in 29 different shapes and Princeton’s Velvetouch™ is made of multiple filaments in varying diameters and blends that change depending on the style of brush.
Princeton watercolour brushes
When it comes to watercolour painting, you can’t go past Princeton’s Select and Neptune ranges. With their synthetic fibres, they offer a quality of performance that is indistinguishable from natural hair brushes. With fantastic colour control, durability and softness, these Princeton paint brushes can be used for both watercolour paint and gouache paint.
