Paint Your Dreams into Reality with Our Exclusive Range of Art Brushes!

The type of brush you use for your painting project can have a big impact on the final result. Choosing the right brush will help you to create the look you want, or allow you to experiment with different styles and techniques.
We offer a variety of different types of brushes, perfect for any artist working in watercolour, acrylic or oil paints. We have a wide range of brushes available for everyone from the beginner creative to the experienced artist, in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your needs. 

Watercolour Brushes 

Watercolour brushes are typically made from natural fibres which are absorbent and hold a lot of water. This allows the brush to release the paint onto the paper gradually, giving you more control over the final result. 

Acrylic Brushes 

Acrylic brushes are typically made from synthetic fibres which are strong and durable. This allows the brush to lay down a thick layer of paint, giving you more control over the final result. 

Oil Brushes 

Oil brushes are typically made from natural fibres which are absorbent and hold a lot of paint. This allows the brush to release the paint onto the canvas gradually, giving you more control over the final result.

Kids paint brushes come in a range of sizes and shapes, providing an assortment of tools for your young creative to choose from.
 In addition to our excellent selection of paint brushes, we also carry a wide variety of painting tools such as paint palettes, paint rollers and palette knives. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned professional, we have the perfect tools to help you create beautiful works of art.

2. How do I choose the right brush for a specific painting technique?

Consider the brush shape and size. Round brushes are great for fine details, while flat brushes are suitable for broad strokes. Filbert brushes offer a versatile option for both. The size depends on the canvas or surface you're working on.

3. What are the differences between synthetic and natural hair brushes?

Quality brushes often have well-shaped and evenly distributed bristles, a sturdy ferrule, and a comfortable handle. Consider the material, whether natural or synthetic, based on your preferences.
