Oil Paint Brush Sets
ZenART’s oil paint brush sets are made with 70% natural semi-stiff Badger and 30% Japanese Synthetic bristles mix, natural Chungking Hog bristles, and Japanese synthetic fibers that mimic squirrel and Kolinsky sable hair. The three brush collections we carry give you a great range of painting styles, from distinctive brushstrokes to proper blending, and for fine detailed work as well.
The handles are made out of light birchwood making them light and well-balanced. They have been UV coated in several layers for extra protection that also keeps your grip from easily slipping. The ferrules are nickel plated so that they will remain rust-free and last for a long time.
Our oil brushes are designed and packaged to come in a case to keep them protected and can be easily organized whether at home or while on the road for plein air painting or traveling.
Not Sold As Individual Brushes
All our brushes come in sets and are not sold as individual oil paint brushes because we designed them specifically with each stage of your painting journey in mind. You’ll have a variety of sets to choose from that would best suit your artistic style and needs.
These brushes are of excellent quality at affordable prices, they’re not like the cheap acrylic brushes you’ll find in discount and crafts stores. But they’re not like the very expensive ones either that are just near impossible to buy especially when you’re just starting out. They make the perfect giftable good quality and affordable sets that you can give to any artist.
