Flat Out Essential: Choosing & Using Large Area Brush Sets

Throughout their creative career, an artist will experiment with a variety of scales & complexities, developing or learning techniques for later application.

Developed by Royal & Langnickel, Large Area Brush Sets are ideal cost-effective timesavers when working on excessively sized canvases, murals or DIY projects that typically require widespread coverage.

What Are Large Area Brush Sets?

Available in both Flat & Slanted options, Large Area Brush Sets include three broad brushes of assorted scale. Featuring flexible, hard-wearing synthetic Taklon bristles in Gold, White & Brown varieties, each Large Area Brush Set is ideally suited to working in thicker mediums such as oil or acrylic colour.

Features & Advantages

1. Coverage: With their wide, flat bristles, Large Area Brush Sets are ideal for backgrounds, murals & largescale artwork, offering excellent coverage & uniform application for colour, medium or finish.

2. Versatility: Thanks to their synthetic bristles, Large Area Brush Sets are incredibly versatile, suitable for use with watercolour, oil & acrylic colour on a variety of surfaces including canvas, paper, walls, wood & more.

3. Efficiency: Largescale projects can be exhausting, requiring more physical work. Large Area Brush Sets not only cover broad swathes of surface, but their bristles can absorb & hold a large amount of paint, requiring reloading much less frequently.

With Gold, White & Brown bristles available in both Flat & Slanted varieties, it’s best to take a moment & consider which set suits your needs best regarding size, shape & application.
