NOVA Synthetic brushes by daVinci are designed for use with acrylics, oils and water-mixable oils. They are a blend of 3 different diameters of synthetic enhance color-carrying capacity for clean, even brush strokes. Their high quality, elastic fibers maintain their shape after vigorous use and are easy to clean. Slightly softer and more flexible than daVinci Top Acryl and Impasto brushes, each head of the NOVA is expertly shaped and tapered inherent to the qualities of synthetic rather than natural hair. Set in seamless, nickel-plated brass ferrules that are rust-resistant and long lasting.
