RENESANS presents a range of handmade brushes, with bristles that have been pre-treated with steam pressure and straightened. These are clamped into the splint, glued and combed to remove short hairs. This technology produces high quality brushes that are exceptionally durable, retain their shape and help to achieve the desired painting effects. Brushes are a basic working tool in a variety of painting techniques. They can be used in many ways depending on the style of the artist and the type and size of brush. They can be broadly divided into those with natural and synthetic bristles or into soft and hard types, or into groups according to the shape of the tip: round, flat, cat's tongue, slanted, fanned, etc.
