What are Natural Bristle Brushes?(2)Jul 15, 2017
Here I continue to introduce natural bristle brushes.
Hog Bristle Brushes
Hog bristles are relatively scarce and expensive. This material has characteristics that set it apart as the best natural filling material for a wide variety of brushes. Each strand of bristle has a natural taper from the butt or flesh end to the tip, giving it resilience not found in other hairs. In addition, the tip end of each bristle is naturally split into two or more branches called the flag. Hog bristle has a slightly stiff to very stiff texture and is brown or black in color excellent for ESD applications. It has excellent durability and water resistance.
Goat Hair Brushes
A very fine hair with limited elasticity. It has a natural kink that cannot be straightened. Used for short, soft brushes like cosmetic brushes. Available at Gordon Brush in natural black and white, and dyed in blue, brown gold, green, gray, and purple.
Red Sable Brushes
The hair of the red sable is the most valuable of all soft hairs. It is very fine, has strong, sharp points and great elasticity and carries color well. Red sable hair makes the finest artists' brushes, being particularly suited for use with Japan colors, oil colors and heavy-bodied sign-writing materials, and is best for fine lettering. Pure red sable hair has a perpetual taper, creating the finest point possible.
