Series 2045. Chungking Filbert
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.
Our Series 2045's are used by many Oil and Acrylic artists. This shape is typical of what the old masters would have used. The filbert allows a broad stroke without the harsh edge the flats may give.
