The Art Spectrum® T300 series of round brushes is essentially the same as the 795 Loew Cornell series made popular by the wonderful body artist Dutch. They have the same white taklon bristles with great spring-back and point-forming attributes ideal for face painting. Art Spectrum is Australian made and owned, whereas Loew Cornell has been shut down.
Good round brushes are the most important tools in your face paint kit. A round face painting brush is a versatile, all-purpose brush that can be used on its point with light pressure for extremely thin lines, or with greater pressure for thicker lines. A good round brush can also be laid on the skin like a stamp to create teardrop shapes for flower petals, little butterflies and more.
An essential for face painting, a good quality round brush will allow you to do:
- precise, fine details
- teardrops and petals
- thin to thick to thin lines (such as tiger stripes)
- fill small areas
- dots of various sizes

Art Spectrum is 100% Australian made and family owned. It originated as a co-op run by a group of local painters who sourced knowledge and machinery required to produce materials that would meet the needs of the local art community. Founded in Melbourne by David Keys Snr (artist and RMIT lecturer) and carried on by his son, Art Spectrum® has grown to be the leading fine art brand in Australia.
As the bristles are synthetic, no animals were harmed for the production of these brushes.
