Synthetic Brushes: white and brown fiber - Borciani e Bonazzi

White and brown fibre

The white and brown fibre, resistant and rigid, is suitable for decoration techniques and hobbies, from school to amateur ones.

The low cost and the possibilities of use in the various techniques allow spreading from glue to acrylics for decoration.

The fibre is short and its elasticity moves the colour on surfaces such as wood, walls and materic backgrounds, creating well-spread backgrounds, still having a precision result.

Pennelli sintetici - Borciani e Bonazzi

Gold Fiber and Extra Gold Fiber

The gold fiber is elastic and moderately soft, a feature that makes it versatile and suitable for all painting techniques, from acrylic to oil.

The flexibility and tenacity of the tips creates light traces on the pictorial material, moving the colour with the artist's imprint. It is an excellent brush to start painting and if kept with care it has good resistance.

The Extra Gold fibre is very soft and light and is suitable for painting techniques where you do not want to see a defined trace, but delicate and light shades.

The fibre is medium-long and allows a good amount of colour to be applied to the surface. Ideal for watercolor, defined acrylic and oil shades.

The Dark red-violet fibre

The The Dark red-violet fibre ùis tough and resistant, and could be compared to bristle.

It maintains elasticity and trace on the pictorial material and is therefore suitable for material techniques and rough backgrounds, where there is the need to move the color while maintaining an evident pictorial trace.

Also excellent for wall decoration due to the tenacity of the fibre. Brushes: series 1, series 2, series 3, series 4, series 6 e la pennellessa series 310.
