As artists who create with a wide variety of mediums, they wanted a paintbrush that could push boundaries and expectations as much as they do! The one-inch Hog hair paintbrush is ideal for blocking out colour, mark-making, and pushing large areas of ink and watercolour around quickly.
You can use the Pro Hart Swagger 1" Hog hair paintbrushes with oil painting mediums, solvents, and acrylic paints with ease.
