Most of us like to paint different things. Some of us are professional painters while some of us just paint for fun. If you are serious about the subject it's very important that you have some knowledge about the different types of paint brushes.
Paint brushes are made up from stiff or soft hairs, which are either natural hairs or synthetic fibers. Soft brushes are specially designed for thin paints as they spread easily. Similarly incase of hard strokes you need hard brushes for creating brush marks in the paints.
Is natural hair better than synthetic? Natural hair paint brushes are expensive as compared to the synthetic brushes. The modern synthetic brushes are excellent and have flexibility to beat even a Kolinsky sable. If you are considering buying a painting brush then synthetic paint brushes are the way to go.
