Series 2015. Chungking Short 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 Series 2015 Short Flats allow a much sturdier brush with a stronger "snap" creating sharper edges and control than for example a synthetic brush. Ideal for blocking-in and impasto. The short flats, also known as 'brights' are popular for Plein-Air (outdoor) painters who want a grain or texture to their brush stroke.
