Quick Overview

The Princeton Series 6400 Catalyst Polytip Bristle is super stiff yet still extremely responsive. Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oil paints.

Starting at $4.29

Princeton Series 6400 Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes are another Princeton breakthrough that advances the science of synthetic hair.

The 6400 series is super stiff yet still extremely responsive. Unlike natural hog bristle, Catalyst has real integrity in water. Natural bristle can be rendered useless when it is water-soaked.

The true advance in Catalyst is the Polytip feature. For the first time, the tip of each individual hair has been split to replicate the natural flags on the finest natural bristle. By giving each individual hair 2 to 3 distinct tips, Catalyst is able to hold a higher volume of paint while providing a smoother application.

Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oil paints, Catalyst pushes even heavy gel mediums with assurance. Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes truly are tools that move paint.

“The Catalyst™ brushes simply have no peer for acrylic work. They are built to take anything that I can throw at them, they clean up very easily and just keep coming back for more. They truly are the Rolls Royce of acrylic paint brushes.” –K.D. Tobin, abstract artist of acrylic and mixed media paintings

Company Info

Over 25 years ago, Howard Kaufman began a small brush business in the basement of his home in Princeton, New Jersey. Previously the president of one of the world’s largest art supply manufacturers, Howard had gained a vast knowledge of brush-making and an understanding of the needs and desires of artists. He believed that by focusing on innovation, value and the best service, he would always have an appreciative audience for his products. Enter Naohide Takamoto, third-generation of Japan’s revered Takamoto brush-making family. The two worked tirelessly to create the finest synthetic sable, beginning with Princeton’s flagship Series 4050. Howard Kaufman and his team have continued to innovate, inspire and set the industry standard in hair, handle technology and innovation, releasing Neptune, Catalyst Polytip and Velvetouch in the past few years.

Princeton Artrist Brush Co. has expanded and exists within the walls of a warehouse still situated near its roots in Princeton, NJ. Howard and his family along with a team of dedicated craftsman, representatives and experts continue to invent tools that move paint and deliver them to the arts community with a passion for both the tools themselves and the artists that use them.
