Paint Brushes & Palette Knives

High-quality art paint brushes are one of the most important tools of an artists’ trade. Their design and manufacture demands precision, patience and skill. Therefore you can rest assured that every Daler-Rowney paint brush is designed to meet the requirements of discerning artists. Each paint brush is made from the finest materials, individually hand-crafted from start to finish by brush-makers with generations of experience.

Fine art painters and decorative artists can select from compact but comprehensive ranges including varying head and handle shapes and sizes, offering excellent choices for all techniques and abilities. There are eight main types of brush shapes, each suited to different types of techniques and detail level.

Each type of paint brush has also been designed to suit a certain type of medium, too, such as oil brushes, acrylic brushes and watercolour brushes, so you can paint everything from precision details to sweeping washes with ease. If you prefer to make expressive shapes, distinctive lines and 3D textures, a palette knife should also be amongst your art tools.

Our professional palette knives are crafted using hand-forged steel, with flexible blades in a variety of sizes, delivering exquisite craftsmanship and comfortable use. Beginners who wish to experiment with palette knives will find easier-to-use styles in the Simply range, allowing budding artists to become accustomed to the many techniques that a palette knife can bring.
