Royal and Langnickel Soft Grip Brushes

A multi purpose range of brushes that share a single price. Plus, we normally have a multi-buy discount as well. Particularly good for acrylics and watercolours.

Available in rounds, brights, long flats, filberts, deersfoot, comb, angle chisel, swordliner and rigger.

The brushes to the left are made by Roberson to be used with their Liquid Metal Acrylic Inks, but are soft enough to be used with loose acrylic, watercolour or even waterbased varnish. The hair is synthetic, and is the finest and silkiest that I have ever come across. Perfect for seamless application of paint or ink as it leaves virtually no brush marks. For that very reason, I have been using it with Liquitex water based varnish to great effect. We stock them in 40mm, 80mm and 120mm width.
