Polar brushes are perfect for absolute beginners, hence their popularity with home craft and hobby artists, and students in schools or colleges. They are unpretentious, tough and durable. Whilst lacking the refinements of Prolene and other upmarket brushes, this is reflected in their pricing. Nevertheless, you can still rely on them to point well, hold colour and keep their shape. Polar brushes are especially useful for decorating models or artworks in plastics, wood, metal, glass, and ceramics. And, whatever use you conceive for them, because they are inexpensive, they will not cause you too much concern if they need to be replaced. Notwithstanding that, for some careful users they become old and cherished tools!
