Winsor & Newton Winton Brushes offer excellent quality at an affordable price. They are made from good quality Chinese hog bristles that are hand-set into seamless, corrosion-resistant ferrules. The natural curve of the hog bristle produces a resilient brush that retains its ‘‘turned in” shape even after heavy use. This provides you with more control and accuracy, whether painting with oils, alkyds, or acrylics. The solid wood handles feature a green stained finish with five coats of lacquer, providing protection along with a smooth finish for ease of use.
