These short handled brushes are for use with heavy color applications. Their heads feature specially tapered fibers that prevent the hairs from splaying and ensure a controlled width of mark with every stroke. While designed for acrylics, they can also be used with oil and Griffin Alkyd colors. The unique mix of polyester filaments in the Galeria Brushes provides perfect control and responsiveness, rinses out easily and has excellent shape retention. These brushes feature seamless, corrosion resistant ferrules and dark burgundy stained handles.
