I was first given a set of Bdellium FX brushes about a year ago by my friend Emmy award winning prosthetic make up artist, Thomas Surprenant. Thom had designed these brushes specifically with the prosthetic make up artist in mind.
Prosthetic make up, with its strong solvents, glues and strong pigments takes a heavy toll on regular make up brushes. Previously I would buy lots of cheap make up brushes to use and treated them as almost disposable. I would then augment these with regular artists’ brushes I would customize to provide unusual shapes and textures that I could not get from the regular make up brushes that are designed more for beauty applications.
I’ve been using Bdellium SFX series brushes for some time now and love them. The designs and shapes are fantastic for all my application and paint effects needs and even after a year of heavy use that first set Thom gave me are still going strong.
Here’s what Bdellium say about their brushes;
Bdellium Tools SFX series brushes are professional, eco-friendly makeup brushes built to handle strong dyes and makeup products and create stunning special effects looks. The bristles and brush adhesives are specially formulated to withstand most solvents and brush cleaning solutions. With all sustainable bamboo handles, vegan soft synthetic bristles, and aluminum ferrules, these brushes boast all of the characteristic features of Bdellium Tools and also thrive in the daring realm of special effects makeup. Achieve flawless, reality-defying looks with the SFX series.
The SFX Double Pouch, part of the Bdellium Tools SFX series, is uniquely designed to help you carry your must-have brushes and tools for your work. This item can be separated into 2 single pouches or it can be attached using the 2 sets of metal snap buttons. Combined, this Double Pouch has 3 zip pockets with reinforced metal zippers and 2 slip-in side pockets for smaller, casual items.
