These Taklon brushes are available in round and flat shapes. They are smooth and easy to work with. The brushes are available in several sizes for either fine details or to cover large areas. Taklon is softer and more absorbent than most other brushes. Synthetic brushes are recommended for multi-purpose use - oils, acrylics and watercolours. These brushes are durable and keep their shape and fibres for a long time and are more resistant to solvents. After cleaning, wash in warm soapy water.
