Designed for washes, glazes, varnishes, imitating, priming and radical large brush strokes. Top Acryl brushes are constructed with five different diameters of extra strong and extra smooth synthetic bristle. The varying diameters hold color much like the flags on the tips of artist-quality Chungking bristle. These brushes keep their form after long and vigorous use. They’re excellent for heavy body acrylics or oils and a favorite of impasto painters (who use thick applications of paint).
