Nova series brushes from da Vinci – 1670 Long-Handled Round Brush – for use with acrylics, oils and water-mixable oils. The soft synthetic fibers possessed by these da Vinci long-handled brushes have small ridges along the shafts of the synthetic fiber hairs which work to slow the flow of paint leaving the brush. This characteristic provides an artist with more control of the color application when using light-bodied or thinned-down paints, especially acrylics. Nova brushes effectively reduce visual brushstrokes and provide excellent blending capabilities. The lifespan of Nova’s synthetic brushes outshines that of the traditional hair brush and is particularly beneficial when painting on rough surfaces. The brush’s nickel-plated brass ferrules are seamless, rust-resistant and long-lasting providing many years of reliable service.
