The Next Generation Brush

The Eclipse Extra Long Comber is a synthetic fibre that against all odds performs like the mongoose of yesteryear – a firm springy base and a soft wispy tip that offers the flexibility to execute any style of painting.

The offset rows of hair provide a slightly irregular tip that can produce the distinct claw like brush strokes I have come to love in alla prima painting. A slight modification on paint or medium load and the end comes together to produce a solid paint stroke. The base of the hairs has a solid concentration, allowing for a heavy pick up to knock in those impasto accents, or firm pressure to lay down some dry-brushing.

The icing on the cake is that a synthetic brush, which has always struggled to produce the variety of spring from ferrule to tip, and the flexibility of irregularity/conformity of the tip, accomplishes all of this.

The synthetic hairs last longer, re-form and take more abuse than natural hairs, cost less than natural hairs, and no animal by-products are needed (for those animal lovers out there).
