Synthetic filaments can be used with water-based paints and oil-based paints. The best synthetic filaments are solid round tapered. Attamark offers brushes with solid round tapered Polyester filaments. The tapered filament means that one end of the filament is sharper than the other end.The tapered end allows the painter to paint without leaving brush strokes and gives shape to the brush for precise cutting-in.

To create a chiseled brush, Attamark brushesChiseled paint brush go through a special setting process after the filaments have been secured onto the ferrules. By being chiseled, the Attamark brush helps you cut a sharper edge.

The top edge of the brush should have a uniformly straight edge. Ragged edges make it difficult to lay down paint evenly and to paint in a straight line. Because all of our brushes are handcrafted, we do our very best to ensure filaments on Attamark brushes line up straight.
