Most scenic painters like to have at least 3" Sash Brush, a 2" Sash Brush, a 1" Sash Brush and an assortment of artists brushes.

Kelly Moore has it's own inexpensive line of sash brushes. Here is a link.There is a store in Woodland.

Blick Studio Bristle Flat

Blick Studio Bristle Flat

Lots of great shapes and great looks! This is our most impressive range of shapes and sizes. The Blick Studio Bristle is a truly beautiful, yet affordable brush. Unbleached Natural Bristle from China sets strikingly on rich lacquered handles, individually sized to balance each size head. A mid-level of firmness makes these the most spontaneous and expressive of our Bristles.

The 7 brush set from Rosco listed below is an excellent group of brushed for the serious student and can be purchased through any Rosco retailer and many scenic paint suppliers. The 8 brush set includes a 3" fitch and is recommended for the student who wishes to sp[ecialize in scenic painting.
