Princeton Art Brush Co.

From shaft to toe, Princeton’s Velvetouch and Elite lines embody what I have always been looking for in a brush series. Achieving both a consistent point and soft touch, these excellent brushes lend themselves beautifully to fine detailed work, where the aim is to eliminate brush line texture for a perfectly smooth finish. As an artist who highlights the natural world in my paintings and participates in environmental conservation, I believe in using synthetic brushes over natural hairs. They are both animal-friendly and longer lasting. I appreciate Velvetouch and Elite’s comfortable and slip-free shafts with their satin finish. Specifically, I love how Princeton has put extra care in designing Velvetouch with different filament blends depending on the brush shape, which creates great versatility for either soft blending or crisp edges. I am pleased to be using these premium brushes.
