Filbert Brushes

Filbert Brushes

The Filbert brush is primarily used in artwork. It has a thick ferrule with hairs that are medium to long, in the shape of an oval. Filberts are particularly effective for blending, usually of a figurative nature. These brushes are ideal for soft floral painting, figurative work, and blending paints. They are great for use with acrylics, watercolors or tempera paints.

The Filbert brush, sometimes referred to as a Cat's Tongue, has a round outer edge. The Filbert's shape can vary from a flatter brush with a rounded outer edge, to an almost oval shape, to more of the Cat's Tongue shape that comes to somewhat of a point, for more control. Filbert brushes are sometimes considered a more advanced artist brush because it can take the place of Flats or Rounds depending on how the brush is held. You can blend broad strokes into fine strokes by turning the brush as you paint. This of course takes more control but has the advantage of not having to switch brushes as often.

The most common brush shape is the Filbert. Filberts are combination of both round and flat with Taklon fill material. They have the rectangular shape of a narrow flat brush, has a rounded chisel edge; the corners of the brush have been trimmed to create a crescent shape at the tip. Their oval like shaped end, have medium to long hairs. Because of their unique shape, filberts can create a wide variety of marks. I use filberts for many painting tasks including blending edges.

The brush performs well from base coating, to floating or for creating shapes like leaves and petals.  It also works great for stroke work. When it comes to base coating a round shape, nothing beats the Filbert Brush.  The rounded edges of the brush prevent ridges from forming.  It also performs great for straight edges. When used on its side, a filbert gives a thin line; used flat it produces a broad brushstroke; and by varying the pressure as you apply the brush to canvas, or flicking it across, you can get a tapering mark.
