A brush is a tool with bristles, wire or filaments made from various materials. Brushes are used in various fields including cleaning, hair, make up, painting and others.
It’s a tool that every household owns for various purposes as well as the magic wand of every artist.

Paintbrushes can be made from sable, synthetic or nylon. They also come in different shapes: round, flat, angle, fan, etc…and in numerous sizes ranging from 0 to 30.
In art, you can have various paint brushes suited for acrylic and oil colours as well as for example watercolours.
