No.18 Filbert Paintbrush
- Soft, feathery bristles
- Short handle
Many contemporary and traditional artists favour the no.18 Filbert paintbrush.
The Warhol’s Wife Filbert brushes feature soft synthetic bristles that are ideal for blending and feathering techniques, whether you work with water-based or mineral-based paints.
It is a very capable paintbrush if you enjoy watercolour and paint with a more direct and controlled brush stroke.
The Warhol’s Wife Filbert paintbrushes feature an oval-shaped head. Their ferrules are jam-packed with fine, soft hairs that keep their shape and rarely shed. If ever, when appropriately maintained. The secure chrome-plated brass ferrules hold the brush hairs firmly in place. They won’t wiggle or fall apart.
The synthetic/Taklon bristles have microscopic pockmarks replicating natural porous hair. This gives the brushes the ability to have excellent loading power, whether using acrylics, oils, mediums, or any other type of paint.
The Warhol’s Wife Filbert paintbrushes include sizes no. 2, 6, 10, 14, 18 and 24, and if you are already a fan of the Filbert brush, a six-piece set is also available.
The paintbrushes feature a short lacquered handle, allowing controlled brush strokes and fitting ergonomically in the creators’ hands.
A Filbert paintbrush is a narrow, flat paintbrush with a rounded point. Use it on its side; a Filbert will give you a thin line. Using it flat will provide you with a broad paintbrush stroke. Or, by varying your hand pressure as you apply the paint or medium to your working surface, you will create a tapering mark.
The unique brush shape of the head will produce smooth, rounded strokes, making them perfect for edging effects. This versatile paintbrush is excellent for quick layouts, detailing, and creating brush stroke lines naturally forming a curved start and finish.
Creators can use the Filbert paintbrush for a vast array of painting techniques. But it is loved by botanical and landscape artists as its smooth, rounded head can produce a flower or leaf petal with one effortless stroke.
Suppose you want to create a landscape with depth. Below the horizon line, paint foliage with ease using small Filbert brushes no.2 and 6. These sized paintbrushes are also perfect for painting a detailed still life.
Because the Filbert paintbrush combines a round brush and a flat one, it can provide detail like a round brush, but it can cover more space than a round as it also has a flatness.

If you are a contemporary or abstract painter, you will love the Warhol’s Wife Filbert brushes, which can smoothly lay down colour. Blending or feathering is also easy. These Filbert paintbrushes are excellent for basing rounded objects, and you won’t have to deal with any squared corners jutting out from your paintbrush.
If you are working on a large scale and want to fill in the background of your working surface with rounded full circles, ovals, semi-circles or curves, the large no.24 Filbert’s paintbrush is excellent.

Load it up and go. But not too much. You want to be able to see the shape of the brush head. Ideally, you don’t want the head to be fattened or overloaded with your medium; otherwise, the shape of the brush can’t do its work for you.
