The Da Vinci Casaneo Series 498 Wash Brush is made from synthetic Kazan Squirrel hair and designed for use with watercolour paint or fluid acrylic colour. These brushes have black lacquered handles and are finished in a wire mop with a plastic quill. These brushes are 100% synthetic so are suitable for vegan artists or those looking for animal-friendly brushes.
The synthetic fibres of Da Vinci Casaneo watercolour brushes are extra soft and deliver exceptional elasticity and a high colour carrying capacity. The Series 498 Wash Brushes carries a high volume of colour, enabling artists to create large, smooth washes - while its fine point also allows for detail. It can also be used for calligraphy techniques.
These brushes have short handles.
This No.4 synthetic brush is in the style of a classic mop as used by Edward Wesson. It has a fine point for detail and fully loaded can produce beautiful glazes, it has become my large brush of choice for my large watercolours. Frank Walters (London, United Kingdom) on 8 Jul 2020
It holds a lot of water, after I immerse it, the filaments expand but still holds its tip perfectly
I can make strong, straight lines holding it upright, or turn it sideways, and dilute the paint on it that way and tapping it leaves v-shaped marks, I ordered 5 Alexis Moore (Coral Gables, USA) on 3 Nov 2020
