The Bristlette Brush holds up well to the inherently caustic qualities of solvents and acrylic paint. Made with white taklon filaments, they are slightly firmer than most synthetic filaments, making them ideal for acrylic work. Even with the most vigorous painting methods, these brushes maintain their ability to hold a point and crisp edge. Many artists find that Bristlette brushes resist wear and tear far better than the more fragile sable brushes, without sacrificing many of the favored characteristics of sable, such as texture and responsiveness. They are excellent for massing color, and for detail work.
