Winsor & Newton Monarch brushes are a professional synthetic hair brush that mimics the look and feel of natural Mongoose hair (now an endangered species).
In addition, because Monarch is synthetic it is more durable than natural hair and has more spring making it better for moving heavy bodied oil colour as well as being less prone to damage from solvents or paint. Monarch is suitable for oil colour, water mixable oil colour or acrylic painting. The brushes provide a stiffer alternative to sable hair but are softer than hog bristle which means this brush is excellent for subtle blending, glazing and fine detail work.
