I love sable oil painting brushes but am looking for a animal-friendly alternative. Can anyone reccomend a high quality synthetic sable brush that handles similarly to the real thing?
Answers and Comments
Without recommending a specific product, personally I've found some synthetic mongoose oil brushes to be very nice. The ones I've tried have offered some of the nice qualities of natural hair with good solvent resistance and nice spring even when heavily loaded.
It might (?) help if you described your painting technique a bit more...do you work with thick, pastose paint? Do you apply a series of thin glazes? Matthew's recommendation seems fine to me (as I personally have little to no experience with synthetic hair brushes) but perhaps we can put some queries out if you can elaborate a bit more on your technique.
