Pro Hart Swagger 1″ 2″ & 3″ flat paintbrushes
The Pro Hart Swagger 1″ 2″ and 3″ white nylon flat paintbrushes are a set of brushes that have endless possibilities. Use them with acrylic paints, oil or watercolours, with glue, ink, sealers, stains and varnishes.
The soft feathery feel of these brush heads will give you a stroke-free look when blocking out areas on canvas or a large sheet of paper. If varnishing minimal brush strokes will be seen on flat and dimensional objects. With light hand pressure and a flick of the wrist, the Pro Hart Swagger paintbrushes will give excellent even feathery coverage on any surface with just about any medium.
The flat edges of the nylon brushes will continue to hold a sharp edge after many uses even with harsh spirit-based mediums. The nylon bristles also sometimes referred to as taklon have enough flex in them to effortlessly cover flat and three-dimensional objects.

What can you paint with these 1″ 2″ & 3″ flat paintbrushes
Easily make broad, thick, sweeping strokes in your artwork using the Pro Hart Swagger flat brushes. They are great for painting in horizon lines on large scale works in acrylic or oil or blocking out areas in an abstract piece. Create quick textured strokes by applying an even and firm hand to your work or use light pressure to feather out areas. Washes and blooms can be achieved with the brushes on large 300gsm plus boards and papers as the nylon hairs can be saturated with water.
Broad sweeping strokes with acrylic and oils can be applied to your working surface with little effort as the nylon brushes can be loaded up with chunky mediums very quickly. Dyes, solvents or thinner mediums such as isopropyl or turpentine can be neatly applied to surfaces as they will not absorb into the nylon brush fibres. Three-dimensional work can be painted on quickly with the natural flex of the nylon brush hairs. The Pro Hart Swagger flat brushes are also ideal for gesso application onto any working surface.
Clean the white nylon fibres of the paintbrushes with warm soapy water, the incredible brush cleaner is an excellent alternative to dish soap and make sure you get right up into the ferrule area to ensure the longevity of your Pro Hart brushes.
