Da Vinci Maestro 2 Artist Bristle Brushes - at least 40% off - Da Vinci Maestro 2 Artist Acrylics are interlocked constructed for both oil and acrylic painting. The highest quality Chungking bristle is double boiled for extra spring and endurance. This allows for maximum stroke control that is not possible with overly stiff bristle. They are interlock constructed so they keep their form after long and vigorous use. While being hand shaped, stiffer bristles are removed to ensure better flags at the tips. Better flags distribute color more evenly than bristle that is simply cut flat at the end. Bristle is deeply set in the ferrule, Maestro 2 holds its shape and loses less hair for this reason. Maestro 2 Brushes have seamless, nickel-plated brass ferrules that are rust-resistant.
