This unique daVinci brush is popular for its water-holding capacity and excellent value in large sizes.
It is a blend of 5 different diameters of extra smooth synthetic hair. daVinci has built specialized machines that can sort synthetic hair in varying diameters. This sorted hair is then turned over to a master brushmaker who hand shapes the CosmoTop Spin.The thicker hair is placed on the outside and the thinner hair in the middle to ensure high color-absorption while maintaining a fine point, stable shape, and energetic spring.
Ergonomic handles allow for maximum painting control and seamless, nickel-plated brass ferrules are rust-resistant.
The result is a revolutionary, durable, synthetic brush for artists.
THese brushes have a standard short, flat handle.
Being a poor student, I went with this brush as it was a bit cheaper but still offered a good size for washes. You can also get some nice lines if you use the side for painting. Stina (Sweden) on 21 Sep 2012
Very good quality brush and though I have only used it once so far, I found the bristles fluid reservoir to be generous, and made applying a wash to the paper very easy. I think I will be using this a lot from now on! Martyn Treeby (Exeter, United Kingdom) on 12 Feb 2014
It holds water well and,when wet, forms a sharp chisel like end which is great for painting lines and will also put a wash onto large areas well. I like it! ROBERT TROTTER (Surbiton, United Kingdom) on 9 Jan 2015
