Paintbrushes For Oil Painting

This might help you find the right paintbrushes.

How to choose:

Hog bristle brushes are commonly used for oil painting, since their resilient quality makes them the perfect choice for applying thick paint. Brushes with finer, softer and more stable synthetic bristles, or brushes with natural bristles—such as sable hair—can also be used for oil detailing when the paint is diluted. 

The choice of shape depends on the artist’s preferences. Flat, square-end brushes, for example, are ideal for covering surfaces, while round brushes are better suited for detail work. Fan brushes are a useful addition for subtle blending and textural effects.

Long-handled oil brushes are made for standing back from the canvas.

Hog bristle brushes are often unfairly thought to be of lower quality because they are often used by beginners or in schools, and also because they tend to lose their bristles during use. There are, in fact, different qualities of hog bristle brushes on the market. The quality of the bristles varies according to where the hogs are raised, while the sturdiness of the bristles is related to how the brushes are assembled and manufactured.
