Description

A round, Shinku, size 6, artist's paintbrush with synthetic fibres made from polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). Round brushes have a large belly that tapers to a fine point and because they retain their shape well, they are useful for painting fine lines and detail. A stiff brush, but softer than hog, the Shinku is a vegan alternative from Jackson's, suitable for use with oils and acrylics. The 'shiny', smooth, red coloured fibres glide easily through the medium and have a good spring and snap.
