This Princeton Catalyst Polytip Series, Synthetic Bristle Flat, Size 16, has bristles that are medium in length when compared to the shorter-length chisel blenders, or longer stroke brushes. This brush can be used on the flat side to fill in large areas of color, or on the flat edge to create thin lines.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Catalyst™ Polytip Bristle brushes are another Princeton breakthrough that advances the science of synthetic hair. This line of brushes is super stiff, yet still extremely responsive. Unlike natural hog bristle, Catalyst™ has real integrity in water – natural bristle can be rendered useless when it is water-soaked. But the true advance in Catalyst™ is the Polytip feature. For the first time, the tip of each individual hair has been split to replicate the natural flags on the finest natural bristle. By giving each individual hair 2 to 3 distinct tips, Catalyst™ brushes hold a higher volume of paint while providing a smoother application. Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oil paints, Catalyst™ pushes even heavy gel media with assurance.
