Best Synthetic Paint Brushes UK Reviews

Thanks for taking your time to read our reviews on the best synthetic paint brushes that are currently available on the United Kingdom marketplace.

There is always a discussion as to whether natural or synthetic paint brushes are the best, though for the purpose of this review we will be concentrating just on the synthetic type. Also we will just be reviewing the smaller 1" - 2" brushes today.

A good tip is that synthetic brushes work the best for acrylic and water based paints and oil based paints tend to ruin them in a shorter space of time. Usually though, a synthetic brush will apply any type of paint you want so they are a bit more versatile.
