These synthetic brushes have flat heads with rounded ends. Their soft white bristles are made from specially selected and blended white taklon filament, and their spring and color capacity duplicates the finest natural hair at a fraction of the price. The brushes are fitted with polished, white tipped silver handles and seamless nickel ferrules. They are suitable for all water based media including acrylics, watercolor, gouache, inks, dyes, and tempera and offer extraordinary value for crafters, watercolor and decorative artists, students, and hobbyists. Silverwhite Synthetic Filbert Brushes are available with both long (10 in.) and short (5 ½ in.) handles.
