OMEGA BRUSHES

Omega Brushes

These fine brushes are imported from the legendary Omega Brushworks of Bologna, Italy.
This venerable firm produces a range of brushes made with the famous Chinese boar bristles,
noted for their resilience and durability.

China boar bristle is the traditional filling material for the highest quality paint brushes.
It is unique in that it is naturally tapered and flagged. China's vast geography provides varying climates
thus causing hog bristles to develop stiffness characteristics on a regional basis.

Each hair is split to produce optimum softness.

Omega brushes are handmade and packed full, without a spacer in the ferrule.
Unlike the epoxy setting of many brushes, Omega sets its bristles in hard, vulcanized rubber – impervious to solvents – which is then seated inside a stainless steel ferrule. All Omega brushes are mounted on balanced, varnished, pecan handles. Quite simply, these are the world’s finest brushes.

Clear finishes achieve their full potential in appearance and longevity when applied with an Omega brush. Only Omega natural bristles possess the fine, flagged ends and required stiffness necessary to apply and smooth a finish.

An Omega brush will hold a substantial volume of varnish without dripping and will produce a blemish free surface and a clean edge. The use of a top-quality, professional-grade brush makes application less tedious and truly a cathartic experience.
