Oil & Acrylic Brushes

class image
Oil brushes are generally made of sable and bristle while acrylic brushes have nylon and synthetic fibers. Some companies sometimes create a blend of natural and synthetic fibers for their brushes, which is more flexible to use for both painting mediums. When trying to choose a brush for oil painting, it is often better to get one with coarser fibers such as hog bristles so the paint can get in-between the texture of the canvas without destroying the brush in the process. After using oil and acrylic paints, it is recommended that you clean the brushes immediately before the paint sets in and dries. Once the paint dries, it is difficult to restore the brush to its original state. This may ruin the integrity of the brush's shape. Use solvents, brush restorers and soap to clean the paint out carefully after every use and dry with a soft cloth or tissue. Do not use rough paper towels or washcloths, for they can bend the hairs of the brush.
