Series 2025. Chungking Long Flat
Chungking Bristles (Bristles from hogs raised in the region of the Chinese city of Chungking) considered to be the best for oil painting, having long, deep flags. Theoretically the longer the flags the better the bristle. Used mainly for oil, acrylic and hobby ceramics. Interlocked ‘curved’ heads allow retention of shape. These superior quality bristles are less likely to ‘splay’ or spread in use.
The longer hair results in a loose brush with less 'snap'. Once these are loaded up with paint you can make expressive, long sweeping marks without the need to reload. The leverage of the bristle make them really popular for many Oil and Acrylic artists.
