The Da Vinci Casaneo Series 5598 Round Brush is made from a 100% synthetic alternative to Kazan Squirrel hair. It is made for use with watercolour and fluid acrylic paint. These brushes have short, hexagonal, black polished handles finished with a silver colour ferrule. These brushes are suitable for vegan artists or those looking for animal-friendly brushes.
The synthetic hair used in the Da Vinci Casaneo brush range is exceptionally soft, and mimics the elasticity and colour holding capacity of natural squirrel hair. The Series 5598 round profile brushes are a great all-rounder - use them to create anything from washes to fine detail.
These brushes have short handles.
Lovely for small details! Viki (Buckinghamshire) on 11 Jul 2020
I'm very new to water colour but decides to get a size 6 and a size 2 "decent " brush. I'm amazed at how good these are, highly recommend:) Peter Angus (Lymington, United Kingdom) on 17 May 2020
Perhaps I'm using this brush wrong but it doesn't seem to do what I want, ever. It does massive washes for its size, and also holds on to water and then does not share with the paper. Good for clouds and landscapes, I guess. CR (London, United Kingdom) on 18 Jul 2020
