Synthetic brushes are an essential tool for fans of miniature painting, as they allow for precise details and professional finishes.
Synthetic brushes are made of artificial fibers, such as nylon or polyester, instead of using animal bristles like natural hair brushes, i.e. they are suitable for vegans. These synthetic fibers offer similar performance to natural hair brushes, but are more resistant to wear and are usually more affordable in price.
BUYING SYNTHETIC BRUSHES
Before buying synthetic brushes at Ammo you should consider these details:
1. Brush size: for painting miniatures, small brush sizes are recommended for fine details. Larger brushes can be useful for applying base layers or painting larger areas.
2. Brush shape: There are several brush shapes available, such as round, flat and angled. Round brushes are ideal for fine details and lines, while flat and angled brushes can be useful for painting larger areas or applying shadows and highlights.
3. Quality of fibers: it is important to choose a good quality synthetic brush, as lower quality fibers may loosen or warp over time. Look for brushes that have soft and resistant fibers, as well as a well-fitting, good quality ferrule (the metal part that holds the bristles).
ADVANTAGES OF SYNTHETIC BRUSHES
1. Durability: synthetic brushes are generally more resistant than natural hair brushes, which makes them ideal for painting miniatures frequently or during long sessions, or even in those cases in which we need to paint base layers of a large number of miniatures.
2. Shape retention: synthetic fibers have an excellent ability to maintain their shape, which allows the artist to make precise strokes and keep the brush tip sharp.
3. Less water absorption: synthetic fibers do not absorb as much water as natural bristles, which means that the brush does not swell and remains in optimal condition.
4. Variety of sizes and shapes: synthetic brushes are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, making it easy to find the right brush for each task.
5. Price: Synthetic brushes are usually more affordable than natural hair brushes, making them an excellent choice for beginners or those looking to expand their brush collection without spending a lot of money.
