Pro Arte Prolene Synthetic Brushes

After years of painstaking research, Pro Arte developed a superb synthetic watercolour brush and named it Prolene. This was the result of combining a subtle mixture of polyester fibres and removing their inhibiting static electricity in order to make them behave like sable. When introduced to the marketplace it received amazed acclaim with many artists reporting that Prolene was outperforming sable and, of course,lasting longer. Even better, it was sold at a much lower price! This innovation represented a major breakthrough in brush making, not least because it met the concerns of those who were troubled by the use of animal hair. Launched primarily for amateurs, Prolene brushes quickly became a first choice amongst discerning professional artists and today continues to remain so. Sales suggest that Prolene is probably the leading watercolour synthetic brush in the world.
