The bristles on a paint brush are either natural or synthetic and in some cases both. Bristle choice is determined by type of paint used.
+ If your paint can be cleaned with paint thinner then use the natural bristles.
+ If you are painting using latex paint then use synthetic bristles.
+ Natural bristles can absorb the water in latex paint and will become limp and difficult to use.
+ Brushes that contain both types of bristles can be used with any type of paint.
