Are there any paint brushes for vegan? If yes, can you also tell me what they replace instead of animal hairs?

I heard theres synthetic paint brushes, but what is it made out of?

Yup! You bet. Usually they make it out of nylon...That's what I use...they're cheaper too...and works just as well.

Look for synthetic rather than sable or hog brushes.

Well, they're not the same. I have both (bought the sable brushes a while ago, no point in throwing them away) and sable bushes hold more water and are more flexible and they generally last longer.



That doesn't have to mean sables automatically are better, it depends on what you do. I tend to prefer the nylons these days, they suit my style better I think.
