When we set out to create a synthetic version of squirrel, we developed a brush that may actually outperform the natural version. Neptune™ is our softest and thirstiest synthetic brush, delivering oceans of color. Experts in natural hair have been incredulous that this is actually synthetic. We are proud to offer Neptune™ in a beautiful range of shapes including mottlers and quills with rich wood tones and sea glass aquarelle handles.
More than 25 years ago, Heritage™ Series 4050 was Princeton’s first synthetic sable offered to artists. A perfect blend of golden taklon in multiple diameters enhances color holding capacity and natural snap. Heritage was developed for Princeton by master Japanese brush-maker Naohide Takamoto, the “Tak” in “taklon.”
Velvetouch™ is Princeton’s best quality brush for all media including oil, acrylic, watercolor and gouache. The blend of synthetic is unique to each individual shape to enhance performance. Comfort is ensured with our smooth, signature Velvetouch™ handle.
