Make the right strokes with artists brushes

Whether you are a seasoned artist with plenty of skill, or just somebody who is playing around with a newfound interest, you will be fully aware that the most important thing that an artist needs is a good brush. Make painting easier for yourself with some quality brushes, from single flat brushes to full sets.

Branded brushes

If you already know what you are doing, then the chances are that you will have your own favourite brands of artist brushes that you tend to stick to for different pieces. For example, you might go to your Winsor and Newton brushes for one type of painting, whilst your Mont Marte number is better for something else. Discover your favourite brand of artist's painting supplies and get straight to work.

Brush sets

If you are new to the world of painting or simply want to top up your supplies, a good brush set is a great place to start as you can get a feel for the different types of brushes that are on the market, which in turn will allow you to expand and grow your own artistry skills.

Most brush sets come with a number of pieces, ranging from three to nine, and more, and each set will tell you exactly what each brush is for. Once you start to get a feel for what you can do and what each brush helps with, then you can expand your horizons and find out which brands make the best brush type to suit you.

Assorted sets are ideal for those looking to start their collection, whilst sets of the same brush allow you to stock up on your favourite sizes, like a set of six extremely fine sable hair brushes for miniature painting. A set of 12 nylon brushes in various styles offers you everything you need to get painting.
