SOLID ROUND TAPERED
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
If the thickness of a brush feels the same from
base to tip, it is untapered. Find an Attamark
brush and feel the difference.
VARIED FILAMENT LENGTHS
Attamark brushes are characterized
by a blend of a great
variety of filament lengths to
allow the filaments to bend
more gradually to increased
brush pressure - allowing for
finer control while painting.
To create a chiseled brush, Attamark brushes
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.
Poor filament retention in the ferrule can cause
a brush to shed filaments, which are deposited
on the painted surface or left in the paint can
The bristles on Attamark brushes are not held
by plain glue to the base. Attamark bristles are
firmly secured in the ferrules with a solvent
resistant epoxy resin which ensures that they
do not shed.
All Attamark brushes go through a machine
that combs the brushes so that any loose
filaments are brushed off before being packaging.
