Paint Brush Highlights: Faux Sable


Faux Sable is more than a great all around paintbrush.  It is superior in its spring and ability to keep an edge, not to mention the full bodied tuft that holds loads of pigment and fluid.  This brush was designed to replicate the standard-grade Red Sable brush, and it will not disappoint.

All of our synthetic brushes are formulated, processed, and custom blended in-house.  And, we continue to search for and find synthetic solutions to natural hair. We create synthetic hair to mirror the qualities of their natural counterparts but remain cruelty-free.  

Since this brush is synthetic, it holds up to the wear of canvas and rough substrates without losing its crisp edge.  Imitating pure sable, this brush holds onto fluid and is sensitive to the painter's pressure and release.  It is delicate enough for watercolor and tough enough to withstand use as a wide glazing or varnish brush.  Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Keep Painting,

Dynasty Brush Works Responsibly

One of the main reasons I enjoy working with Dynasty is their responsibility in formulating brushes and the way they give back to the community.  Besides making stellar brushes, Dynasty continues to give internationally for the cause of animal welfare and art.

We support the fight against animal testing by partnering with responsible suppliers and vendors.  Handles come from managed wood reforestation programs.  We also support several conservation and wildlife protection organizations including: Friends of Asian Elephant and The Diane Fossey Gorilla Fund International.  We manufacture special brushes for elephants who paint, like Shining Moon shown above.  We support the Kids in Need Foundation, providing free school supplies.  We supply brushes to Foundation for Hospital Art and Splashes of Hope, which paint murals on the walls of children's and VA hospitals.  In addition, we contribute to several art organizations to support artists and their work, like Manhattan Arts International.  

Keep Painting, 
Karyn
