The Right Paint Brush Shape for the Job
We make sure to stock up on a wide variety of different paint brushes. Different art and painting techniques require a different paint brush. At Bondi Art Supplies, we fully understand the artist's need for a wide variety of tools.
That's why if you head to our shop today, you can find a variety of paint brush shapes that are designed for different techniques.
And to make it easy for customers to find the right paint brush online on our website, you can even filter the results so that you only view specific brush shapes and sizes.
With that said, you need to know the purpose of the different brush shapes before you fill up your tool kit. So, here's a quick rundown of the different pain brush shapes on our website and how you can use them;
Fan Paint Brushes
As you might be able to tell by the name, a fan paint brush is shaped like a fan. It has a flat surface and spread-out hairs, which is great for painting landscapes and other environmental elements.
Additionally, you can use this type of paint brush to blend in the elements of your painting and add lighter highlights on different parts of the canvas.
For the best results, most artists recommend getting natural hair brushes if you're looking at a fan paint brush. This is to help you get a more feathered and softer look, which is the main purpose of a fan paint brush.
At Bondi Art, we have a variety of different fan paint brushes. We stock up on different sizes, handle lengths, and brush hairs, so you can find just the right paint brush or paint brush sets for your needs.
Round Paint Brushes
Round brushes are a great option for many different artists. This is due to the fact that holding round brushes is similar to holding a pencil, which is something many people are familiar with. So, a round paint brush will feel very natural in your hand.
Additionally, you get much more control over the brush strokes, which is very important when applying different painting techniques. You can use a round brush with fluid paints or heavy body paint, which is one of the reasons this is a popular option among many different artists.
In fact, round brushes are a crucial part of any paint brush set. So, if you don't have one of these in your collection, it might be about time to get one for yourself.
Flat Paint Brushes
Flat brushes function similarly to wash brushes. However, they are significantly smaller since they are designed for smaller canvases. If you're looking to apply oil paint or other types of paint with a lot of coverage, flat brushes could be what you need in your workshop.
Additionally, there are many different types of flat brushes on the market. These are all designed for specific tasks. Examples of other flat brushes are the filbert brush and acrylic flat brush.
Different Brush Hairs for Different Artists
Another important aspect to consider when buying a paint brush set for your toolkit is the hair.
Since the hair on your paintbrushes is what come into contact with the paint and the canvas, they have a huge effect on the final texture and look of the painting. This is why artists stock up on different types of brush hairs for different painting needs and techniques.
Typically, brush hairs are judged on two different categories: the material and the stiffness.
So, you can get a combination of these qualities on a single paintbrush. For example, you can have a soft bristle brush with synthetic hair, or you can get a stiff bristle brush with natural bristles and vice versa.
To help you better understand it, here's a quick rundown of the different brush hairs and how they can affect your painting;
To start, let's look at how the stiffness of the paint brush hairs affect the way the paint hits the canvas.
The bristle type is soft bristles. These hairs create a much smoother stroke on the canvas since they don't leave as many brush strokes. These are ideal for blending backgrounds, and to use with thinner paints such as watercolour and other fluid paints.
Most of the watercolour brushes you'll find on the market today have soft bristles, as this texture fits in really well with the way watercolour reacts with a canvas.
While soft bristles give you a smoother finish, you don't have as much control. With stiffer bristles, you can create much sharper lines and strokes. These are ideal for heavy body paints as they can handle the thickness and density of the material.
Additionally, you can load much more paint on a stiff brush. So, if you're looking to make large and bold strokes with a lot of paint, you might benefit the most from using stiff bristles.
Now that we've gone over the stiffness, it's time to look at the actual paintbrush hairs you can find at Bondi Art.
To start, Bondi Art hosts a wide selection of natural bristle-paint brushes. These are made of real hairs, so you can find goat hair brushes, hog hair brushes, sable brushes, racoon hair, rabbit, and many more. These bristles are ideal for oil painting as it handles the texture and consistency of the paint much better.
Natural bristle paint brushes have been around for a long time and were some of the first paint brushes used by humans. With that said, keep in mind that these brushes can sometimes be harder to use and clean compared to synthetic bristles.
Synthetic bristles are made of nylon, plastic, and other materials. These paint brushes are best used for water-based paints such as latex. The advantage of using synthetic brushes is that they can hold much more paint, making it easier to apply broader strokes.
Additionally, these paint brushes are much easier to handle and produce a smoother finish. In the world of art, there are many painters who prefer using synthetic brushes over natural ones, however, that's mostly up to personal choice and preference.
When shopping for different paint brushes online, it's important to understand the different materials and their advantages. While there are a lot of different brush types, no one is better than the other.
The best paint brushes for you are the ones that suit your needs and preferences. So, before shopping, make sure to figure out the kind of painting techniques you'll be practising, the paint you use, and the artwork you plan on making. That way, you can figure out all the different brushes you need for the project.
What Paint Brush Should I Use for Watercolour?
If you're using watercolour paint, remember that this is a very fluid material that requires a softer touch. With that said, you also need a lot of control with watercolours as they can be a tricky medium. So, if you plan on painting with watercolours, we recommend using a round brush.
These types of paint brushes are very versatile. You can use the point for delicate and detailed work while applying more pressure to produce broader and bolder strokes for backgrounds and other applications.
With watercolour paint brushes, we recommend using natural hairs instead of synthetic ones. While it might be fairly expensive, a round sable watercolour paint brush would do you a lot of good and last you a long time.
There are many different shapes you can get for watercolour painting. While we recommend getting a round brush if you're looking for versatility, that isn't your only option.
Additionally, you can opt for spotter brushes, wash brushes, and even flat brushes for the job. But if you were to only get one type of brush for your watercolour project, we highly recommend round paint brushes.
What Paint Brush Should I Use for Acrylic?
If you need acrylic paint brushes, we recommend opting for synthetic hairs. This is because synthetic brushes tend to hold more paint and work much better with acrylic. It's important to get smooth strokes when using acrylics, which is why synthetic hairs are the better option.
With that said, acrylic paint brushes also come in many shapes and sizes. And just like with watercolour paint brushes, the most versatile option for painters is the round brush. Even if you need oil paint brushes, most people recommend round brush sets for their versatility.
But depending on your needs and goals as an artist, you may need other shapes such as angled, filbert, fan, or wash brushes.

The best paintbrushes are the ones that can do the job. Remember, different brushes have their own unique qualities and advantages. So, before shopping for brushes, we recommend figuring out what you need the brush for. That way, you can choose an option that suits your needs. But if you're looking for an all-around brush for you to use when painting, we recommend getting a round brush.
For beginners, we recommend a bright brush, which is a flat brush with softer bristles. This makes it very easy for the artist to control, which allows them to learn different techniques much faster. Alternatively, beginners may also benefit from using a round brush. Round paintbrushes feel very similar to a pencil when holding it in your hand. So, you get a much more natural feel with a lot more control, which is something that's very important for beginner painters.
Yes, there are many different types of paint brushes, all of them are made for specific needs. There are brushes designed for making tiny dots on the canvas, brushes for large and bold strokes for creating environments, and even brushes that create a feathered effect with the paint. As a painter, it's important to understand the different types of brushes and their uses. That way, you can find the right ones for a specific project and only stock up on the brushes that you need.
