This is a stunning, quality Short Haired Hog Brush range that combines the control of short flat brushes with the softer edges of rounds. The Da Vinci Maestro2 Hog Bristle brush series are made of bristles which are worked deeply into the ferrule. Only through such bristle length can the positive and enduring effect of the interlock production come fully into its own, which is crucial for the elasticity, springiness and longevity of these bristle artist brushes.
Da Vinci Maestro2 Brushes have been developed for use with oil colours but can also be used with alkyds and acrylic colours. The care and attention to detail in the making of the Maestro2 bristle brushes perfectly demonstrates the best traditions of craftsmanship combined with the clever technical advances from the famous brush company Da Vinci, founded in the 19th Century.
The ‘Filbert’ shape allows the user to create both a flat tongue shape as well as fine paint marks when turned onto its sloping edge. The interlocking of the bristles when two equal portions of filaments are set opposite, with the natural curve turned inward ensures a strong, perfect shape making long-lasting brushes with good bounce and pliability.
Da Vinci use Chungking bristles in the manufacture of Maestro2 brushes which are white and especially strong and will cope with intensive use. The bristles are named after the Chinese city of Chungking. Bristle brushes tend to show the painterly paint marks and can be used for oil paints, acrylic paints as well as being popular for fresco and mural painting.
