What is a Synthetic Brush?

Many artists prefer to use animal bristle brushes, but many don't. Some choose to use a synthetic artist brush. Synthetic brushes are brushes with synthetic hair that is very similar to animal hair, but much more affordable. Synthetic brushes are easier to clean because they don't hold the paint as much as natural hair brushes and they are often more durable and harder to damage than natural hair artist's brushes.
