Talens Art Creation has a wide range of quality brushes for different types of paint and techniques. The brushes vary in size, hair type and shape. For the brushes of Talens Art Creation both natural and synthetic hair is used. Hog bristle (bristle) is a sturdy type of hair which is used for thicker paints, such as oil and acrylic colours. The hair is strong and resilient and leaves a brush stroke in the paint. Ox-ear hair is a strong and durable soft hair type that is suitable for all types of paint, and particularly if you don't want to see a brush stroke or if you use the paint thinned. As ox-ear hair can absorb a great deal of thin paint, this brush is also suitable for water colour and gouache. Filament consists of synthetic fibres (polyester) and is suitable for all types of paint. Due to the strength and resiliency of polyester, filament brushes are highly suited for oil and acrylic colours. As the filament brush absorbs moisture well, it is also suited for water colour and gouache. Pony hair is an affordable soft type of hair that absorbs water well. Pony hair brushes are therefore ideally suited for water colour and gouache.
