Oil/Acrylic Brushes - Synthetic

While natural-hair bristles (like the stiff hog bristle and soft sable) are commonly recommended for oil painting because they cope well with the heavy texture of the paint and maintain their shape even after many uses, brushes with natural hairs can be damaged by acrylic paint over time. Plus, they don't like sitting in water.

Synthetic bristles, on the other hand, come in a range of stiff and soft varieties (usually made from nylon or polyester) that quite successfully mimic the feel of natural-hair  bristles. They're more suited to acrylics because they cope well with the acrylic resin, are easier to clean, and don't mind sitting in water. They don't hold their shape quite as   well as natural-hair brushes, but they're still quite durable (if cared for properly) You can still use natural-hair brushes on acrylics, but make sure that they've been cleaned of any oils or turpentine (which will repel acrylic paint) and be sure to clean them quickly after each use.
