Protege fine artist brushes are skillfully hand-crafted with maximum care, attention, and quality control practices to produce the perfect assortment of affordable painting instruments for every medium. Synthetic White Nylon hair is designed to simulate the benefits of sable, widely acclaimed as the finest natural artist brush hair. Synthetic bristles are durable, stand up to solvents, and are easy to clean. White Nylon hair provides maximum snap, spring and paint load for long lasting strokes of color. With slightly stiffer filaments than their taklon counterpart, nylon brushes are the best choice for acrylics and tempera, and the supple tapered edge provides ample softness for delicate watercolor and gouache application.
