The Art Cellar proudly carries the Catalyst line by Princeton.

Catalyst Blades, Wedges, & Polytip Bristle Brushes are an innovative new line of creative tools for artists.  
Catalyst truly are tools that move paint.
- super stiff, but truly responsive. 
- Designed for use with medium to heavy-bodied acrylics and oils

Not quite a brush. Not quite a palette knife. Catalyst tools are crafted from flexible silicone to allow artists a new form of expression.  
- Ergonomically designed to fit in your hand allowing a direct interaction with your work. 
- Catalyst Blades are mounted on artist brush handles offering a blend of tradition and innovation.
- Heat-resistant, they excel with encaustics. 
- Artists are using them with plaster, clay, and even frosting. 
- Made of FDA-approved silicone, Catalyst Blades and Wedges are great for food crafting.

- Catalyst Polytip Bristle brushes are another Princeton breakthrough that advances the science of synthetic hair.  
- Unlike natural hog bristle, Catalyst has real integrity in water.  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.
