Purdy Paint Brushes is your one-stop-shop for all things painting. We’ve got everything you need to get the job done, including a large selection of Purdy Paint Brushes. Whether you’re a professional or a novice, it is important to have the right equipment.
  • XL

    Popular PURDY® XL™ Series brushes offer a unique blend of Satin‑Edge nylon (dyed Tynex® nylon) and Orel® polyester filaments. XL™ brushes are highly recommended for both interior and exterior painting projects with all paints. The stiffness retention of XL™ brushes (from the polyester content) makes them especially high-performing for outside painting under hot and humid climate conditions. Only DuPont™ solid, round, tapered (SRT) Tynex® nylon and Orel® polyester filaments are used.
  • Pro-Extra

    PRO-EXTRA® the finest paintbrush ever made. The secret to PRO-EXTRA® excellence includes an artful mix of the following three premium filaments, which when blended expertly together provide unmatchable superior performance and handling:
    TYNEX® nylon for softness and ease of paint flow.
    CHINEX® for faster cleanup with self-flagging tip.
    OREL® polyester for consistent stiffness retention.
  • Elite

    Engineered with the highest quality Dupont solid, round, tapered Chinex and Orel polyester Purdy is proud to introduce a brush that has ultimate performance and versatility. With flagged and tipped filaments, XL Elite brushes perform well with all paints, especially high solid, low VOC paints and heavy-bodied latex coatings which can be difficult to apply smoothly. When the job is complete the premium filaments make clean up quick and easy.
  • Ox-Hair

    Ox-Hair is the softest, most supple natural animal hair used in PURDY® handcrafted brushes. Specially formulated and carefully blended with their softest White China bristle for just the right amount of resiliency, these extraordinary painting instruments are perfect for ultra-fine enamel and varnish projects where an extremely smooth, exquisite finish is desired.

    Whether it’s fine artist work, enameling or staining of doors, fine smooth furniture, cabinetry or baseboards, nothing can match the mirror finish provided by these extra soft bristle brushes.
  • Black China

    The mainstay of the professional painter. Long recognized for its ability to hold and deliver more paint than any other material, Black China bristle reaches its ultimate potential in PURDY®handcrafted professional brushes. Only the world’s finest Black China bristle is selected. It is boiled under pressure for absolutely thorough cleaning and bristle straightening. Then varying bristle lengths and stiffnesses are formulated and blended, carefully avoiding reverse bristles which could cause dragging and streaking.
  • White China

    The standard of excellence in bristle. TheWhite China bristle brushes are equal in character and performance to traditional Black China bristle brushes, and excel at applying ultra-smooth finishes with the most challenging coatings. Using only the finest White China bristle available, PURDY® handcraftsmanship begins with thorough cleaning, builds with careful matching and mixing of bristle lengths, then ends with expert assembly to provide tools of unmatched painting performance.
  • ClearCut

    PURDY's first tipped-only, nylon polyester brush that provides superior cutting-in capability. This unique formulation of DuPont™ solid, round, tapered (SRT), Tynex® nylon and Orel® polyester filaments offers increased stiffness for use in all climates with all paints. The specifically engineered CLEARCUT™ cutting-in capability provides speed and a smooth finish throughout your painting projects. This hand-chiseled, tipped-only series ensures painting perfection for all types of painters and matches the performance you expect from PURDY.
  • Nylox

    For interior use, NYLOX™ is the favorite brush of many professional painters. Its 100% dyed nylon from PURDY®, the first brush company to offer dyed nylon, is still the standard by which all others are measured.

    Only 100% solid, round, tapered (SRT) Tynex® nylon by DuPont™ is used.® Carefully tipped and flagged by craftspeople, their NYLOX™ filament provides greater abrasion resistance for increased wearability while its famous Satin‑Edge finish provides the excellent painting performance only found in such chiseled, handcrafted painting tools.

    Each NYLOX™ brush is formulated with varying lengths and taper ratios that assure proper tool flexibility. Best with water-based paints, PURDY® NYLOX™ brushes use “full-sized mixtures” of stock for excellent paint lift and smooth application. The PURDY® NYLOX™ Series has long been considered the painter’s number one choice for interior painting projects.
  • Syntox

    SYNTOX™ brushes provide all the benefits of natural Ox-Hair brushes and then some. They are 20% softer than the Ox-Hair Series and offer the added durability of DuPont™ solid, round, tapered synthetic filaments for a superior finish with a longer lasting brush. SYNTOX™ brushes are totally shed resistant and will last at least five times longer than Ox-Hair brushes. Even more importantly, the SYNTOX™ brushes can be used with both water and solvent‑based clear finishes.

    That’s right, you now have a brush that is specifically made to be used with waterborne stains, varnishes and polyurethanes. The PURDY® SYNTOX™ Series features a unique new formula combined with our renowned hand craftsmanship and exclusive finishing process.
  • Chinex

    Clearly superior. That’s the benchmark Purdy® sets for new products. In contractor field tests, painters raved about the “cleanability” of the Purdy® brush, which features 100% DuPont™ Chinex® filaments. Many expressed appreciation of the comfortable, flush-ferrule design, a Purdy® exclusive. Like natural bristle, Chinex® is self-flagging for optimal paint coverage. Yet, the filaments are stiff, so the brush holds its shape when applying today’s heavy-bodied paints.
  • Symphony

    Symphony has been making fine decorating tools since 1949. Since then, Symphony has well established itself as the leading manufacturer of special effect tools. Now Professional and do-it-yourself Faux Finishers alike have the confidence in knowing that Symphony has the tools to ensure their success in creating the special effects that are gaining popularity in home decorating today.
  • Accessories

    PURDY® accessories are made with the same dedication to quality as their brushes and rollers. From poles to pipe painters, they use only the finest raw materials and the most modern and highest quality processes to bring you the best value in painting accessories.

    PURDY® professional roller frames use heavy gauge, 5/16" to 3/8" diameter rod. And the exclusive PURDY® 9‑W Hardwood handle gives painters lasting durability along with “all day” comfort.

    The extra productivity comes without any extra weight when using PURDY® lightweight frame and PRO-EXTRA® Jiffyloc® poles, featuring the quick release adaptor.
  • Prep Tools

    Purdy Premium and Contractor prep tools were engineered with input and direction from professional painters and manufactured with the same level of quiality you expect from purdy.
