SIGNATURE BRUSHES

Vincenzo Celeste

“Since I started my career as figure painter, I’ve had the chance to test plenty of brushes of all brands and fibre types. In all these cases, I frequently noticed some flaws that brought me to think that the price of those products was not worth their quality. Generally, the figure and model painters use watercolour brushes instead of acrylic ones due to their acknowledged thin tips, although they deteriorate faster because of the aggressive nature of acrylic on the soft and delicate fibres typically used for watercolour brushes, making their lifespan short.
It’s not easy to design a brush that can last over time while maintaining a thin tip and a thick body when using acrylic colours, but I’m convinced that series 36 is a great tool. This series allows figure and model painters to stop almost maniacally worrying about their own brush and enjoy painting in relaxation.”

“Thin tip, high hair wear resistance and elasticity make these brushes perfect for most techniques. From the basecoat to the subtlest glazes, these brushes grant the desired results without running into typical problems such as losing the tip firmness. Hair length was conceived with the aim of making these brushes sturdy and resilient, so that the fibres return to their original shape after every brush stroke. The extremely thin tip, even at sizes considered “too big” for model and figure painting techniques, allows the utmost precision in every brush stroke.”
