SUPPLIERS OF THE FINEST ART MATERIALS

Specialist Brushes

This is our collection of artist quality specialist brushes; browse through the collection for all the special effects paint brushes you might need. We have everything from miniature brushes to calligraphy brushes, as well as varnish brushes and a whole lot more. Many of the paint brushes here can be used in different ways, such as the watercolour brushes that have additional silver-tip features to allow you to use them for drawing. There are sash and flat brushes for fast painting over a large canvas, fan brushes for subtle blending, and smaller brushes for those fine details. You will also see that there are traditional animal hair brushes as well as vegan alternatives available.

Miniature Brushes For Fine Details

For detailed work, you will need to get your hands on a high quality set of miniature brushes. You will be able to pick up sets here that are graded through 000, 00, 0, 1 and 2. These thin brushes are versatile in that they can be used for all media, watercolour and glass painting. With that said, they have a specific use in each case, which is to allow you to paint very fine details into your work. This comes into use not only in miniature paintings, but also in larger works where you wish to add small, precise details.

Calligraphy Brushes for Beautiful Lettering

If you are after some professional artist level lettering brushes, then we also will have plenty for you to explore. You will be able to purchase sets that include calligraphy brushes of different sizes. These sets offer larger flat brushes which allow for variable strokes, whilst the smaller round brush will be there for you to use either for details or for corrections. It is not just the shape of these brushes but the quality of the brush fibre itself which is important. You will find the lettering brushes here to be long lasting and bouncy enough to hold their shape, enabling a repeatable accurate stroke.

Varnish Brushes for a Stunning Finish

This is not to mention to professional level varnish brush sets that are available. These brushes make use of a slightly more hardy fibre which gives them strength and durability, whilst they also offer you a smooth finish. As well as being ideal for use with varnishes, they can also come into their own if you are working with oils and acrylics.
