ZenArt, making a difference in the art world and beyond.
All of our brushes are DESIGNED AND TESTED by PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS and handcrafted by master brush makers.
Our exquisite round, pointed water media brushes are ergonomically balanced to provide you with the exceptional experience you deserve.
The short handled brushes in the Black Tulip Collection are designed for working on flat surfaces. Each lacquered Birchwood handled brush is individually wrapped and comes with a plastic cap to protect the bristles and hold their shape.
Shedding can be an issue with new, natural hair brushes as you break them in, but adding the finest synthetic blend to our brushes greatly diminishes the problem. In addition, each brush has a properly fastened nickel-plated (to prevent rusting) ferrule and is wet tested to reduce shedding.
RELEASE YOUR CREATIVITY and soar with ZenArt’s professional artist’s brushes!
All of our brush collections are designed and tested by professional artists and handcrafted by master brush makers. Professional artists and teachers have reviewed and recommended our brushes. Many artists who have tried the more expensive big name brands have switched to our brushes to get the same quality experience at a more reasonable price.
The simple paint brush is the most important tool in an artist’s paint box. Trying to use a low-quality student or hobbyist brush is stressful and discouraging. When it comes to artists’ brushes, money saved is no savings at all!
The Black Tulip Collection by ZenArt is a perfect gift for the artist in your life! No matter where that person is on their creative journey, your gift will give them the versatility they need in a water media brush set.
