FLAT SYNTHETIC  BRUSH

Mercurius has been looking for a perfect synthetic brush which can be used for veiling, water-colouring and “wet-on-wet” painting. We have now finally found a brush that is truly a break-through in the field of synthetic brushes. This brush is not only equal to our natural brushes (polecat,cow and boar brushes), but even exceeds their capabilities. The brushes are soft, flexible, resistant to deformation and the absorption and release capacity is amazingly high.

These amazing painting conditions, FSC certified and the fact that synthetic hair contributes to the sparing of animal hair have ensured that these brushes earned our special quality mark art makes sense® (AMS).

We truly recommend this paintbrush, for wet techniques but also for the use of gouache, oil, acrylic and so on. Just like our natural brushes (which are suitable for wet techniques).

Both brushes have a similar appearance, except for the fact that the synthetic has uniformly even black bristles, whilst the natural fitchew bristles are various shades of dark brown/black with a few golden/grey hairs.
