Cotman watercolour brushes are a range of pure synthetic watercolour brushes of the highest quality that have been created using the same skills, generated over many years, as those used in making the finest sable brushes.
The secret of the Cotman brush lies in the fibres. By blending fibres of differing thickness we achieve the three most important qualities sought after by the artist. The thicker fibres contribute strength and spring whilst the thinner fibres improve colour carrying capacity, which have recently been improved by 50%. Together they retain a perfect point, time after time.
A traditional round head shape for all-purpose work. Seamless, nickel plated ferrules. Metallic blue polished handles.
These brushes have short handles.
Being new to watercolour painting it took me ages to decide on which brushes to buy. I did not want to shell out for the most expensive brushes money could buy, but thought these were a good compromise. Being new to watercolours I am not familiar with the other brands but was very impressed with these. The have a good reservoir and are lovely to hold. Will be buying more soon Martyn Treeby (Exeter, United Kingdom) on 17 Feb 2014
After trying other brushes, this series comes out tops, they keep their points for quite awhile, then they are used for other areas, so they last a long time. Shirley Batchelor (Castledouglas, United Kingdom) on 17 Mar 2014
