Paint Brush Canisters

Recently we had a question sent to us from an art teacher, purchasing brushes for her classroom.  She was looking for the right brushes to purchase in bulk for specific types of media.  Since not all brushes are created equal, not even in bulk, I thought this an opportune time to share the differences in our brush canisters.

We don't have all of our brushes available in canister, or bulk, but quite a few and many different shapes and sizes, both long and short handle.  I have listed the brush types available with their shapes, hair type, and the preferred medium.  

Please note that there are many types of canisters from Dynasty available, below is just the basic list of hair types.

Brushes in canisters can be purchased from many of our dealers online and by catalogue:  Utrecht, Nasco, School Specialty, United Art and Education, Alvin and Dick Blick to name a few.
