Global Art and JansenArt bring you the highest quality Bristle Brushes. Made in the U.S. these brushes feature the same high quality ferrules along with high quality bristle. The bristles in these brushes are slightly longer than in other brands giving the brushes a slightly softer tip. This is helpful when painting direct, alla prima or au premier coup techniques . They also feature the new clear acrylic handles for longer life! No more split handles because you left them in the water too long!
