Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes advance the science of synthetic hair. This new series is super stiff yet still extremely responsive. Unlike natural hog bristle, which can be rendered ineffective when water-soaked, Catalyst holds its own in water.
The true advance in Catalyst is the Polytip feature. For the first time, the tip of each individual hair has been split to replicate the natural flags on the finest natural bristle. By giving each individual hair two to three distinct tips, Catalyst is able to hold a higher volume of paint while providing a smoother application.
Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oil paints, Catalyst pushes even heavy gel mediums with assurance. Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes truly are tools that move paint.
