Princeton Grainers are fantastic for texture, especially when creating fur and feathers. They stand up to abuse and get the job done! Lunar Blenders are my favorite for dry brushing. The edge is great for getting into small, tight areas and the bristle tips don't disintegrate the way other brands do. Loving the new angle brushes when working with thicker paint in mixed media techniques. I just love the whole range of Princeton Brushes!!! I recommend them to my students and painting friends for their quality and affordability.
