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.
