Tip of the Week

Artist paint brushes are always made of three components, the tuft, ferrule and handle. The tuft is what holds and applies your paint and is made of natural hair, synthetic fibers or sometimes both. The ferrule is what holds the tuft to the handle. A good ferrule is made of non-reactive metal and is seamless. Good quality handles are made of hardwood.
