Bristle Paint Brushes

When it comes to achieving high quality decor, our variety of natural bristle brushes will help you do so. Natural bristle brushes are made of animal hair and are ideal for applying oil-based alkyd paints, so it is best to avoid latex water-based paints when using these brushes as the product will just absorb, leaving the bristles limp.

Frequently asked questions about bristle paint brushes

  1. What is a natural bristle paint brush?

    Natural bristle brushes are made from animal hair, commonly badger or hog hair. This is in contrast to synthetic brushes which tend to be made from nylon or polyester.

  2. Which paint should be used with a natural bristle brush?

    Natural bristle brushes are the best choice for use with oil based paints or stains as they minimise the amount of brushstrokes left behind to create a smoother finish. Natural brushes don’t work as well with water based paints as they tend to swell which, although meaning they hold more paint, means that it is tricky to be as precise. If you want to use a water based paint, you should use a synthetic brush instead.
