With superior performance, the Versatil brush range has received extremely positive feedback from artists worldwide. It is an exciting new alternative in the synthetic brush world.
"I really love the new Versatil series: they are firm and springy in just the right way. They are ideal for detail and for washes, reminiscent in the shape of japanese brushes but with the firmness of a high quality brand...Excellent for working quickly. They are also very elegant brushes, and feel perfect in the hand. I am also really enjoying their points, which seem pointier than most" - Wendy Artin

White Toray fibers are some of the softest synthetic filaments and are typically used with watercolour. This round profile brush is made up of fibres of three different sized filaments and three different lengths, which taper together beautifully to form a perfect, fine tip. The fine point and soft hairs mean that colour can be layed down smoothly with the ultimate precision. These brushes also have the capacity to hold alot of colour. If you are looking for a watercolour brush with a good point, this is the brush for you!
This artificial hair is considered to be an almost perfect imitation of genuine Squirrel hair. The special fibres that are used in the Ultimo brush series offer extraordinary softness and colour loading capacity. These brush features are almost equal to their equivalents in a genuine Squirrel hair brush. The Ultimo series is viewed by some to be the benchmark for superior synthetic hair.
The Prado brush range is highly regarded as its synthetic fibres offer a good similarity to genuine sable hair. Similar not only in colour, but also in its imitation in spring and the absorption of liquids, the Prado range offers remarkably similar characteristics to its genuine sable counterparts. Each brush is manufactured from three different sized filaments of three different lengths, meaning that the brush forms a fine tapered point. These variations in size and length give the Prado brush a similar brushtroke to a brush made from natural hair.
Barroco Gold Torayis one of the most popular synthetic hairs for watercolour painting. The fibres used in the Barroco range are similar in many ways to the White toray fibres of the Perla range, but the Barroco series features a greater combination of fibre diameters which allow for more spring. Formed in a perfect point, this exceptional brush can be used from start to finish of a watercolour piece.
