Bolt Brushes Santi and I have been working hard to design a set of brushes that we hope every painter will enjoy using. From choosing the right handle size to the length and material of the bristles the process was not easy. We tested tons of brushes until we were happy with the overall design and look of each of them. The Stroke (flat) brushes have short bristles which make them much easier to control than those with long bristles. Our Liner (round) brushes have sharp tips and longer bristles allows for a nice flow when making swirls and twirls and teardrops. They have a semi-medium bounce (not too stiff not too soft). The blooming brush allows you to make perfect petals every time.
All of the brushes have synthetic bristles (no animals were harmed to make the brushes), and short shiny painted wooden handles. All wood comes from managed national wood reforestation programs, and our manufacturer is involved with several non profit organizations that fight to protect endangered species, as well as organizations that provide free school materials to kids in need. All brushes were assembled in the USA using components from Thailand. To top it off, all handles are painted with non-toxic UV reactive paint, so that you can easily find your brushes while working at Black Light parties!
Please take note: Brushes are handmade and all measurements are approximate, the actual width may vary a little, but you, as the artist are in control of the width of your strokes by the amount of pressure you put on the bristles while painting.
