A LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PERFECTION AND PRESTIGE
19th Aug 2021
A Brief Overview of Each Range
Perfection is Hamilton’s top-end line of paintbrushes, made using the very best materials and manufacturing methods. The result is a paint brush that provides optimum spreading rates, durability and a smooth finish. A notable feature of the synthetic line of Perfection brushes is the flagged ends of the filaments, which offer greater coverage, paint-hold and finishing
Prestige is the second-tier brand from Hamilton. Like Perfection, this range offers synthetic and natural brush options, but there are a few differences. In terms of appearance and feel, the Prestige brushes feature unvarnished, beavertail handles and chemically tipped synthetic strands, but unlike Perfection, the Prestige synthetic brushes don’t offer the tipped ‘split-ends’
Synthetic brushes are ideal for water-based painting. The Perfection line of brushes offer very fine high quality synthetic filaments that are flagged and tipped, allowing them to pick-up more paint and produce a smoother finish. The ends of the polyester filaments are also chemically tipped to ensure a pointed end, rather than a blunt one, as often seen with mechanical manufacturing methods.
The Perfection synthetic range also features the Perfection syntheic angled brush. Available in 35 and 50mm, this long handle brush offers exceptional control and precision when cutting-in.
Remember, the softer it feels, the finer the tip, the finer the tip, the finish the finish!
The Prestige synthetic brushes are much like the Perfection line, but the main difference is that the ends of the synthetic filaments are not flagged, meaning that they don’t split at the end. This reduces the coverage and paint pick-up of the brushes. This range still offers great pick-up and spreading rates, just not to the standard of Perfection.
Comparing the Handles
The handles on both ranges differ. Perfection has a varnished handle made from wood and shaped like a Kaiser handle, offering excellent control and comfortable use.
Prestige features a smooth beavertail handle that is unvarnished, which offers great grip and control when you’re brushing for long periods.
