The Ultimate Bristle range are made with interlocking bristles which offer the artists a traditional brush; but with double the interlock.

Two equal amounts of best quality Chinese bristle are set opposite each other so that the natural curve is facing forwards. The bristle is selected in length and size to enable perfect balance. Although this can be labour intensive, this gives the artist a hard wearing brush.

Traditionally bristle was used by artists who required a strong loaded stroke and not a precise mark.

The Ultimates are a favourite for Oil painters. That being said in general it's worth knowing they are bushy in nature - and do splay out somewhat more than synthetics. They are a much rougher textured brush than synthetics are - and especially in acrylics. They can be quite difficult to clean. Can be used in acrylics, but they must be cleaned thoroughly and the expectation of them should be for grainy texture and organic marks.

The filbert is a favourite for portrait painters as it allows for a softer edge & stroke. That being said, they are used for landscapes, still lifes and such too.
