Zen Series 53 is comprised of better quality, thick diameter synthetic filaments designed to replicate natural hair brushes, making them ideal for acrylics and oils. Slightly softer than series 33, these brushes have excellent snap and hold their shape better than natural bristles. The ultra-metallic, silver ABS handles can soak in water without swelling, cracking or chipping.
Angular Brights/Shaders: Used for tight shading and curved strokes.
Brights: Length and width of brush is generally squared. Similar to flats, but shorter hairs make a stiffer brush.
Fans: Brush fibers are spread out making it useful for subtle blending and for textural effects.
Filberts: Create a softer edge than a flat or bright.
Flats: Longer hairs than a bright, this brush has more flex and a large color carrying capability.
Rounds: Smaller sizes are typically used for detail work and larger sizes tend to be used for washes and filling in color.
