Good with acrylic and tempera as well.

Hog Bristle hair has unmatched stiffness for heavy media oil and acrylic painting, mixing and blending. Hog bristles are coarse, providing attractive brush stroke definition. All natural hair brushes have high paint load capacity.

Natural Hair has incredible water loading capacity, making it the perfect choice for watercolor, gouache, fluid acrylic, and tempera.

With slightly softer filaments than their nylon counterpart, taklon brushes very closely resemble the feel of a natural hair brush. For use with acrylics, tempera, watercolor, and gouache.

White Nylon hair is designed to simulate the benefits of sable, widely acclaimed as the finest natural artist brush hair. Synthetic bristles are durable, stand up to solvents, and are easy to clean. White Nylon hair provides maximum snap, spring and paint load for long lasting strokes of color.
