Karen W.

I have some ZenART watercolour brushes, so thought I would give these a go, they are excellent value for money, and lovely quality, I was very impressed by the brush set. They clean up really easily and feel and look as good as new after using them. I bought the set of brushes and palette knife and case, it works out to be a very inexpensive but quality set. I would recommend them.

Guy M.

I love these brushes! What a perfect combination of my favourite filbert brushes with some other useful shapes, and coming in flagged hog and super smooth badger blend, I find them enjoyable to paint with. The satin carry case is practical and does its job, opens and closes in a snap. Most of all, I like the idea of supporting children art foundation through buying from Zenart. I highly recommend it to anyone if you are looking for a good set of brushes at a great price, and help the family business who cares and contributes to the future of our society.

How are Renoir brushes made?

Good question! There’s a complex manual process behind making each brush, and all the methods require high precision and years of experience. Let us try to give you a general overview of how these beautiful brushes are made:

  • A ZenART Renoir brush is handcrafted with a brush handle made of genuine and exquisite lacquered birch wood and seven layers of UV coating. The bristles are manually formed using different techniques for specific shapes, tightly tied, combed, gripped by a non-rust nickel ferrule, glued with a precise injection of special glue. After drying, the ferrule holding the bristles is double-crimped to the handles to fasten securely. The brushes are then inspected again to remove any ‘floating shorts’ —bristles which may sometimes remain, especially in larger sized brushes or round shapes, and cause initial ‘shedding’ during breaking in period. After a thorough inspection, the brushes are then protected and sized before getting packed.
How durable are these brushes?

These brushes are ‘trained’ to maintain their shape even after heavy use and provide consistent control whatever art project you’re working on. Using elegant seven-times-lacquered birch wood long handles allows for a luxurious feeling of unrivalled balance, particularly during intricate and exacting strokes. The use of high-quality badger and synthetic bristle mix on these brushes also made them very sturdy. And of course, they’ll last even longer if you take good care of them.

Are these brushes suitable for beginners?

Yes! These brushes are high quality, and many professional artists praise them for their fantastic performance, thoughtful variety of sizes and beautiful design. When it comes to art materials and tools, a famous saying among the artists and the art tutors is that ‘One should buy the best quality one can afford.’ It’s so true, especially for beginner artists, who are still building up their confidence and knowledge of techniques. The best art tools will help accelerate progress and keep you motivated to paint and experiment with new techniques.

Considering the value for money we offer for such an extensive artist-quality set, including the guides, tutorials and advice, you’ll make a significant long-term gift for yourself or other artists, whether beginners to advanced and professionals.

How do you protect the brushes?

In order to bring you the best quality brushes intact we apply special protective solution to keep the tips of the brushes in the original shape.

We also wrap the brushes in transparent films, and it’s done to protect and waterproof the brushes for transit. We want to make sure that you receive your brush set in its best state, wherever you are in the world.

It also serves as a seal of guarantee to our customers and our return department that the brushes have never been used before. In some cases, we experience customers returning used brushes and these are not re-sold. Having these plastic films ensures that you received a brand-new set.

How do I clean and care for these brushes?

Our Renoir Choice collection brushes are easy to clean and maintain:

  • For new brushes: First, always remove the transit solution by washing the brushes with mild soap and lukewarm water. Slightly massage between the bristles on the palm of your hand, letting any floating bristles to be washed away, if any, especially in large sized-brushes.
  • For regular cleaning or every after painting: Clean the brushes well with soap every after use—before the paint dries— to avoid damage from paint build-up at the base of the ferrule. Do not push the brushes too hard into your palms.
  • For acrylics: Wash the brushes with mild soap and lukewarm water.
  • For oil: Wipe excess oil paint with tissue paper. Using a small amount of toxic-free solvent, rinse all leftover oil paint build up and wipe clean. We recommend toxic-free solvents as they are safer. Wash the brushes with mild soap and lukewarm water.
  • We recommend using vegetable oil-based soap, gentle to the bristles and your skin.
  • After rinsing thoroughly, use a microfiber or other absorbent towel to remove excess water.
  • Gently reshape the bristles with your fingers, and let it dry naturally on a horizontal or flat surface.

Brush Care Tips:

  • Never leave the brushes soaked in water or solvent, as this will ruin your brushes and cause damage to the bristles, glue and handle.
  • From time to time, and for optimum results, you can apply a special lanolin-based brush conditioner (optional), for TLC and extra longevity of your brushes.
  • Follow our recommended cleaning guide above to reduce possible initial ‘break-in shedding’, which might be just short bristles not glued inside the ferrule that are trapped between the longer bristles.
  • After washing and drying, always gently reshape the bristles with your fingers, and let it dry naturally on a horizontal or flat surface.
  • Shedding: It is natural for brushes to shed lightly. Minimal shedding is common especially while you break them in. To reduce problems of shedding, ZenART has crafted these oil and acrylic brushes by blending badger with the finest Japanese synthetic fibers. The brushes lose fewer bristles and normally don’t shed at all. In rare occasions, it might happen, and such cases are significantly less compared to other ones on the market. Reasons can be any of the following:
    • Using brushes before removing the transit solution
    • Harsh “breaking-in” of new brushes. We suggest trying the above method of cleaning, drying horizontally, and gently removing any floating bristles while dry, before giving up on your brushes. It’s breaking in process, and quite common for the natural bristles.
    • Misuse and ruining of the brushes due to harsh chemicals, abrasive surfaces, soaking brushes in water or other solution, vertically letting them stand and loosening the glue.
    • In extreme cases, manufacturing defects, when not enough glue was applied and the brush (losing bristles long enough to be potentially glued in the ferrule, not floating shorts). In such situations, we are here to support you, too, and offer our help to resolve any issues.
Are these brushes short or long-handled?

The Renoir collection brushes are long-handled for full expression with oil or acrylic paints. These brushes are made for working on large canvases or while standing with an easel. The exquisite birch wood brush set also has seven layers of UV coating to prevent flaking, and provide slip & wear resistance.

What do you mean by non-toxic oil paints?

Non-toxic means we don’t use any toxic ingredients in our paints. Toxicity, can come from the pigments themselves, and from the additives – dryers, fillers, plus the solvents and mediums you might use with the paint.

All our paints use non-toxic pigments that replicate the same qualities of traditional pigments, still remarkable, but not hazardous. We also don’t use any toxic additives in our paints. We always recommend to use the non-toxic solvents and mediums if you need, and even have these recommendations in our Oil Color-Mixing Guide available to all our customers who bought ZenART Infinity series oil paints.

We strongly believe in this healthy approach to art, because your health and environmental safety is our highest concern.

What do I need to start painting with oil?

On top of your creativity and willingness to experiment, you’ll need the following:

  • A professional brush set, like our Renoir and Artist’s Choice Collections.
  • A professional oil paint set. Choose from our highly pigmented Infinity Series (Essential, Impressionist, Portrait Palettes)
  • A non-toxic solvent
  • An easel (or at least a chair with the back)
  • A primed stretched canvas or canvas board.
  • Cleaning materials like water, soap, rags and tissue.
  • Apron or painting clothes (optional but recommended
  • A well-ventilated place to paint.
Are these oil paint sets suitable for beginners?

Sure! Our Infinity Series of Professional Oil Paints are designed for all experience levels. Ardak Kassenova, professional artist and co-founder of ZenART created limited palettes of fundamental oil colors based on the colour palettes of old masters and contemporary artists who proved how with a limited palette of essential colors, one could create an outstanding work.

Considering the value for money we offer for such highly pigmented non-toxic oil paint sets, including guides, tutorials and advice, you’ll make a significant gift for yourself or other artists, whether beginners to advanced and professionals.

Do I really need professional paint?

When it comes to art materials and tools, a famous saying among the artists and the art tutors is that ‘One should buy the best quality one can afford.’ It’s so true, especially for beginner artists, who are still building up confidence and knowledge of techniques. The best art tools will help accelerate progress and keep you motivated to paint and experiment with new techniques.

Professional-grade oil paints of Infinity series are highly pigmented, have more depth and produce a wider range of ‘clean’ color-mixes, and as a result more vibrant painting. Our paints have same buttery consistency across different colors, which is also quite important, and makes the whole process of painting a breeze. You can use it wet-in-wet / alla-prima, without a fear of creating a ‘mud’ on canvas. ZenART oil paints are great for impasto painting using stiff bristle brushes and/or palette knife, and retain the beautiful strokes of impasto technique. At the same time, being finely milled, they are easy to thin to the finest glazes without disintegrating and creating the unintended granulation.

Student-grade paints are usually of lower quality, less expensive and have far less pigment, and consist of pigments of lower quality, additives and fillers. This not only have different more flat consistency, but can cause ‘muddy’ colors, unsatisfactory color-mixes, and overall disappointment.

We strongly believe, that especially at the beginning of your creative journey the quality of your tools and materials can play a crucial role in your progress and self-esteem. The high-quality tools and materials will become your best friends and extension of your creativity, whereas poor quality art supplies can cripple you, kill the joy of painting and even might contribute to the decision that art is not for you. Therefore, at ZenART we strive to bring the art supplies at the most affordable price, without any compromise in quality, plus equip you with the best advice and even tutorials for your progress.

Can I mix ZenART oil paints with water or acrylic?

Definitely NOT. ZenART oil paints are traditional linseed oil-based paints, which means they are not mixable with water or water-based mediums. You can only use artists oil mediums: solvents for thinning the oil paint at the beginning of the painting process, linseed oil (or other artist oils) for subsequent layers. There are other mediums you can use, of course, that are a mix of solvent, oil and dammar or other resins, which are also made specifically for the traditional oil paints. Our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, a professional artist herself, sparingly uses any medium, as the consistency of our oils is very buttery and especially perfect for alla-prima technique.

How long does it take the oil paints to dry thoroughly?

ZenART oil paints dry faster due to the high-quality, acid-free linseed oil binder and proprietary process used. Ultimately, it depends on many variables (Average 12 hours to 3 weeks for safe handling)

  • The weather conditions. Is it damp, rainy or sunny?
  • Do you paint outside, with open windows or not?
  • The technique you used: Thick textured layers of paint like in impasto paintings will take the longest to dry.
  • Whichever technique you are using, please bear in mind the quintessential ‘fat over lean’ rule – applicable to all oil painting work, to avoid cracking or flaking, and proper drying of the layers.
  • Pigments used, Burnt Umber, Raw and Burnt Sienna dry faster. The reds and whites generally dry slower. All the other pigments dry more or less at the same rate.
  • Oil paint dries from oxygenation, so the more exposure to oxygen, the quicker your painting will dry.

Can I mix ZenART oil paints with water or acrylic?

Definitely NOT. ZenART oil paints are traditional linseed oil-based paints, which means they are not mixable with water or water-based mediums. You can only use artists oil mediums: solvents for thinning the oil paint at the beginning of the painting process, linseed oil (or other artist oils) for subsequent layers. There are other mediums you can use, of course, that are a mix of solvent, oil and dammar or other resins, which are also made specifically for the traditional oil paints. Our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, a professional artist herself, sparingly uses any medium, as the consistency of our oils is very buttery and especially perfect for alla-prima technique.

How long does it take the oil paints to dry thoroughly?

ZenART oil paints dry faster due to the high-quality, acid-free linseed oil binder and proprietary process used. Ultimately, it depends on many variables (Average 12 hours to 3 weeks for safe handling)

  • The weather conditions. Is it damp, rainy or sunny?
  • Do you paint outside, with open windows or not?
  • The technique you used: Thick textured layers of paint like in impasto paintings will take the longest to dry.
  • Whichever technique you are using, please bear in mind the quintessential ‘fat over lean’ rule – applicable to all oil painting work, to avoid cracking or flaking, and proper drying of the layers.
  • Pigments used, Burnt Umber, Raw and Burnt Sienna dry faster. The reds and whites generally dry slower. All the other pigments dry more or less at the same rate.
  • Oil paint dries from oxygenation, so the more exposure to oxygen, the quicker your painting will dry.

Mary Elizah T.

The 12 brushes are individually packed and come with the plastic head to protect the bristles. I love the grip design of the brush; it makes it easier for me to handle it and take more control of my stroke. The bristles are soft. You won't find a strand that slips away which is great. It picks up pigments from my watercolor well. Considering the size, it holds a decent amount of water. As I was working with it, I found the strokes smooth. They take care of all those trouble spots that are hard to reach. Great product! Worth it!

Ryan B.

These Zenart fine art paint brushes are good quality brushes. They are extremely light, so I had no hand fatigue after using them for a long time. They also have a comfortable tri-cornered grip just above the ferrule. This set includes a variety of paint brush styles (round, fine line, filbert, flat, angle) and sizes, which is incredibly convenient when working on a piece with several different color schemes. I like the sturdiness and consistency of the bristles. They keep their shape and hold up well with acrylic and oil paint. There was no shedding, and it is easy to create clean lines and edges.

Laurie

I love these fine line brushes! They are in a little pouch that ties up and is the perfect size to carry around. They are soft and perfect for small brush strokes and also high quality. I have a bad wrist so using these I didn’t feel any discomfort whilst using them they are very comfortable to hold. I have nothing bad to say about the brushes at all. Highly recommended!

How are Fine Line detail paint brushes made?

Good question! There’s a complex manual process behind making each brush, and all the methods require high precision and years of experience. Let us try to give you a general overview of how these beautiful very fine paint brushes are made:

  • A ZenART Fine tipped paint brush is handcrafted with a paint brush handle made of genuine and exquisite lacquered birch wood and seven layers of UV coating. The bristles are manually formed using different techniques for specific shapes, tightly tied, combed, gripped by a non-rust nickel ferrule, glued with a precise injection of special glue. After drying, the ferrule holding the bristles is double-crimped to the handles to fasten securely. The small brushes are then inspected again to remove any ‘floating shorts’ — bristles which may sometimes remain, especially in larger sized brushes or round shapes, and cause initial ‘shedding’ during breaking in period. After a thorough inspection, these very fine paint brushes are then protected and sized before getting packed.
Are these small brushes fur-free?

Yes. We used Japanese synthetic hair fibers to mimic qualities of natural soft bristles for that crisp, smooth detailing without using animal products; extensively tested for their professional performance. We hope this puts your mind at ease.

However, if you prefer natural brushes, you can take a look at our Turner brush set or other lines of faux synthetic and natural fiber blends.

How durable are these detailing brushes?

These detail paint brushes are ‘trained’ to maintain their shape even after regular use and provide consistent control whatever art project you’re working on. Ergonomic triangular shaped handles take away the tension from your hands and allow longer detailing. Using elegant seven-times-lacquered birch wood short handles allows for a luxurious feeling of unrivalled balance, particularly during intricate and exacting brush strokes. The use of high-quality Japanese synthetic hair fibers on these tiny brushes also made them sturdy. And of course, they’ll last even longer if you take good care of them.

Are these small paint brushes suitable for beginners?

Yes! These small brushes are high quality, and many professional artists praise them for their fantastic performance, thoughtful variety of shapes and sizes specifically designed for fine detailing. When it comes to art materials and tools, a famous saying among the artists and the art tutors is that ‘One should buy the best quality one can afford.’ It’s so true, especially for beginner artists, who are still building up their confidence and knowledge of techniques. The best detail paint brushes will help accelerate progress and keep you motivated to paint and experiment with new techniques.

Considering the value for money we offer for such an extensive artist-quality detailing paint brush set, including the unique complimentary canvas roll-up case for storage and travel, guides, tutorials and advice, you’ll make a significant long-term gift for yourself or other artists, whether beginners to advanced and professionals.

Why do you wrap the fine paint brushes in plastic?

There are two reasons we wrap the brushes in transparent films:

  • To protect and waterproof the thin paint brushes during transit. We want to make sure that you receive your detailing brush sets in its best state, wherever you are in the world.
  • It serves as a seal of guarantee to you, our customers and our return department that the fine point brushes have never been used before. In some cases, we experience customers returning used brushes and these go to a separate bin. Having these plastic films ensures that you’re receiving a brand-new detail paint brush set.
How do I clean and care for these small paint brushes?

Our Fine Line Detailing Paint Brush collection are easy to clean and maintain:

  • For new paint brushes: First, always remove the transit glue by washing the brushes with mild soap and lukewarm water. Slightly massage between the bristles on the palm of your hand, letting any floating bristles to be washed away, if any.
  • For regular cleaning or after painting session: Clean the fine paint brushes well every time after use—before the paint dries—to avoid damage from paint build-up at the base of the ferrule. Do not push the thin brushes too hard into your palms.
  • For watercolour and acrylics: Wash the small brushes with mild soap and lukewarm water.
  • For oil: Wipe excess oil paint with tissue paper. Using a small amount of solvent, rinse all leftover oil paint build-up and wipe clean. We recommend toxic-free solvents as they are safer. Wash the fine brushes with mild soap and lukewarm water.
  • We recommend using vegetable oil-based soap, gentle to the bristles and your skin.
  • After rinsing thoroughly, use a microfiber or other absorbent towel to remove excess water.
  • Gently reshape the bristles with your fingers, put the brushes horizontally and let them dry naturally on a flat surface.

Detail Paint Brush Care Tips:

  • Never leave the fine tipped brushes soaked in water, as this will ruin your paint brushes and cause damage to the bristles, glue and handle.
  • From time to time, and for optimum results, you can apply a special lanolin-based brush conditioner (optional), for TLC and extra longevity of your entire detail paint brush set.
  • Follow our recommended cleaning guide above to reduce possible initial ‘break-in shedding’, which might be just short bristles not glued inside the ferrule that are trapped between the longer bristles.
  • Shedding: It is natural for very fine paint brushes to shed lightly. Minimal shedding is common especially while you break them in. To reduce problems of shedding, ZenART has crafted these small detail paint brushes with Japanese synthetic fibers. The fine point paint brushes lose fewer bristles and normally don’t shed at all. In rare occasions, it might happen, and such cases are significantly less compared to other ones on the market. Reasons can be any of the following:
    • Using the detail paint brushes before removing the transit glue
    • Harsh “breaking-in” of new fine tip paint brushes. We suggest trying the above method of cleaning,
    • and gently removing any floating bristles, before giving up on your new detailing paint brushes.
    • Misuse and ruining of the small delicate brushes due to harsh chemicals, abrasive surfaces, soaking fine brushes in water or other solution, vertically letting them stand and loosening the glue.
    • In extreme cases, manufacturing defects, when not enough glue was applied and the thin brush (losing bristles long enough to be potentially glued in the ferrule, not floating shorts). In such situations, we are here to support you, too, and offer our help to resolve any issues.
Are these brushes short or long-handled?

The Fine Detail Paint Brush collection have short, sculpted handles for a luxurious and precise fine detail painting with acrylic, watercolor, gouache, inks and oil. These small brushes have been specifically designed, weighted and balanced for precise painting and avoiding any hand fatigue or poking in your eye. The exquisite birch wood brush handles also have seven layers of UV coating to prevent flaking, and provide slip & wear resistance.

Imelda D.

At last a paint brush that works well with acrylic paints! All the brushes in the pack retain their shape after rigorous use, unlike other professional paint brushes. I like the long handles and use mine to apply thick and thin amounts of acrylic paint on canvas with both small and large brushes. I will never buy another make after discovering ZenART brushes, and they're better value for money. I've shared a small section of a painting I completed using ZenART's filbert brushes.

MisterD

Nice brushes and work well with heavy oils. They have survived some pretty tough punishment in the short time I have been using them, and have a nice feel and accuracy. Would definitely buy again... however, I bought these brushes specifically to stop my recent tendency to buy throw-away brushes. Probably the best brushes I've owned to date.

These are brilliant brushes for the money. I was a bit dubious at first because I thought the quality would be not great but they are superb. I shall definitely buy from ZenArt Supplies again as the service was excellent.
