Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes are another Princeton breakthrough that advances the science of synthetic hair. This new series is super stiff yet still extremely responsive. Unlike natural hog bristle, Catalyst has real integrity in water. Natural bristle can be rendered useless when it is water-soaked.

The true advance in Catalyst is the Polytip feature. For the first time, the tip of each individual hair has been split to replicate the natural flags on the finest natural bristle. By giving each individual hair 2 to 3 distinct tips, Catalyst is able to hold a higher volume of paint while providing a smoother application.

Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oil paints, Catalyst pushes even heavy gel mediums with assurance. Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes truly are tools that move paint.

    Experience: STUDENT

    These new brushes are fantastic! I prefer painting wet on wet and these brushes push the paint around and allow me to control where it goes. I am happy with the firm structure of the brush. I can apply the lightest of washes or load on the paint if I want. They clean up well and are refined enough for cleanup and detail work. Great for underpainting and finish coats as well!
