Unico Brushes

The very innovative design of Unico brushes, exceptional tools for painting, has been registered by Borciani Bonazzi. Each Unico artist paintbrush series is manufactured with the most innovative and totally cruelty free fibers, carefully combined in order to provide the best possible performance for each pictorial technique.

A mix consisting of fibers in different diameters makes every Unico brush series exclusive and unique. Porosity, undulation, rigidity, conicity and section are peculiar characteristics of this series, allowing the filament to keep its shape, flexibility and absorptive capacity.

Those brushes are available with four different filaments:

  • Mangusta, a soft synthetic fiber with slow water release and high absorption. A perfect solution for pictorial techniques using diluted colors, watercolors, inks and soft shades of colors
  • Fiammato: a remarkably elastic but fine fiber that ensures a very good and slow water release. It is suitable for any pictorial technique and in particular for oils, acrylic paints, tempera and inks.
  • Silver: a rigid and elastic fiber characterized by microporosity inside each individual filament. With its high absorptive capacity, it is particularly suitable for a past form of painting without leaving traces.
  • Off White: A rigid and elastic, but very fine fiber. A perfect solution for any pictorial in- depth technique and for material-consistency painting even on rough surfaces. Its shape remains unchanged even under stress conditions thanks to the interlocked production technique that allows each individual fiber to be perfectly 'close woven'.

The well balanced wooden handle design allows the weight to be well distributed and to control the application of colors. The sinuous paintbrush design naturally fits into the hand, resulting in a reduced wrist joints tension. The exclusive Anti-Rolling System prevents the brush from rolling once it is laid down. It also keeps the tip suspended from the table. The fibers remain then in shape and do not leave any color on the surfaces when the brush is put down. The bottom of the handle is rounded, allowing a very safe use even in school environments.

Great care in details and quality during both the planning and the manufacturing phases of Unico artist's paintbrushes. High quality materials, ferrule brightness and functional character, thick and high quality brass, first-quality fixing resin, handles made from solid wood with strong and refined pearly lacquer finishes, available in four elegant colors. Thanks to its properties and the variety of different items available, Unico collection can be considered a really comprehensive and versatile tool, suitable for every pictorial technique.
