For students, amateurs, and professionals alike, Simply Simmons Brushes offer excellent performance, dependability, and value — all at one low price, no matter what the size. They are handmade by skilled craftsmen to meet the same high standards artists have come to expect from the Robert Simmons name. Chungking Hog Bristle Brushes are designed especially for work in oils and acrylics. They feature fine, artist-quality natural hog bristles, formed by hand using traditional interlocked construction. This process utilizes the natural curve of the bristles to ensure that the brush maintains its shape over time, even with rigorous use. The brush heads are resin-bonded and crimped to kiln-dried, lacquer-dipped birch handles using seamless brass and aluminum ferrules to ensure a long-lasting, permanent fit.
