ABOUT PAINT BRUSH:
A paintbrush is a tool used to apply paint, ink, or other types of fluid to a surface.
A paintbrush is made of four main parts:
- The bristles are the part of the brush that holds the paint.
- They can be made of natural materials, such as hog hair, sable, or ox hair, or synthetic materials, such as nylon or polyester.
- The type of bristles used will depend on the type of paint being used. For example, natural bristles are best for oil paints/watercolours, while synthetic bristles are best for acrylic/gouache & watercolour paints.
- The ferrule is the metal band that holds the bristles in place. It is usually made of brass or steel.
- The handle is the part of the brush that you hold onto. It is usually made of wood or plastic.
- The crimp is the small metal piece that secures the ferrule to the handle.
