Synthetic bristle brushes don’t absorb water so work well with water based paints such as latex and acrylics. Synthetic bristle or filaments are wear resistant and provide good paint pick up, they can however, be used with oil paints on a rough or textured surface or in hot and humid conditions where a bristle brush would be ineffective. Natural bristle brushes are best for oil based paints they are soft and provide a fine finish. Natural bristle brushes are very absorbent and whilst they won’t absorb oil from oil based paints they will absorb water from water based paints which causes the bristle to flare and become ineffective.
