FPE Omega Lily Oval Brushes : Why an oval brush? And, how soft and pliable are the bristles?

2 posts in this topic

I am an artist and use this because of the amount of paint it will hold and cover large areas on paintings. The bristles are numerous and unlike American made brushes cover the entire oval area including the middle. It therefore is not soft or pliable because of large amount of bristles but you can blend with it using the end of bristles.Overall quality of the build is much better than American high end brushes.

the oval brush holds more paint or varnish which assures a good coat without "holidays" the bristles are not terribly "soft" but for varnish work you want some stiffness as well as pliability. These are top of the line brushes for fine varnish or paint work and will last for years.
