What are Daler-Rowney Dalon brushes?

Acting as a man-made alternative to traditional sable brushes, Daler-Rowney Dalon brushes are an excellent choice for any artist working extensively with watercolour. Featuring premium synthetic hair that rivals even the finest sable brushes on the market, Dalon brushes are ideal for any creative working on a strict budget.  

Daler-Rowney Dalon brushes

Daler-Rowney’s synthetic watercolour brushes are designed to mimic traditional sable brushes, and all sizes work seamlessly with watercolour, oil, and acrylic. Though many synthetic fibres are known to fray and wear after extensive use, Daler-Rowney Dalon brushes are specifically tapered for excellent shape retention. Watercolour work can be hard-wearing on synthetic brushes, but the resilience and durability of Dalon ensure that your synthetic watercolour brushes continue to perform year after year. 

Cost can be a prohibitive factor for artists when purchasing tools. Though the world’s finest sable brushes create stunning strokes, they can be out of reach for beginners and those still finding their feet in the art world. Each Dalon synthetic paint brush performs similarly to sable, and artists will be relieved to know that they can be found for a fraction of the cost. Should any artist need to collate several brushes for a piece of work, this can now be easily accomplished with Daler-Rowney’s synthetic watercolour brushes.

Each Dalon filament has been elegantly tapered to a point, which allows artists to craft pieces with unrivalled attention to detail. As Daler-Rowney Dalon brushes are designed to mirror sable brush strokes, artists can be sure that their work will exhibit the same care and focus as work produced using more expensive tools.
