University brushes are affordable and all-purpose, stiff enough for use with oils and acrylics, yet soft enough for use with watercolors. Serving a wide array of craft applications, they provide an inexpensive option for the beginner, the student, and the professional painter. The no. 235 round has the same brush head as the short handle no. 233 round, but the longer handle is generally more suitable for oil and acrylic painters. These brushes feature seamless nickel plated ferrules and red polished handles with white tips.
