Made from Kolinsky sable. A round bellied watercolour brush. Excellent for washes as well as fine detail work.
These brushes have short, sculpted handles.
PLEASE NOTE: Due restrictions by the US Fisheries & Wildlife Department regarding sable hair, we are not able to send any sable brushes to the US by FEDEX.
First purchase of a quality brush product to help with my miniature wargaming painting. Having used cheap brushes for years I never saw the need for buying good quality ones. However, the difference was immediately noticeable. The brushes are easy and comfortable to hold, retain their points well, the paint remains near the tip whereas with cheaper brushes it tends to be absorbed along the entire length of the brush. More importantly it was easier to switch from thick to thin lines with the same brush without having to clean them and then reload the paint.
Wish I had brought them sooner. John Murrie (Palmerston North, New Zealand) on 1 Apr 2012
Very Poor the 000 brushes do not maintain their points in service. Stephen Wise (Hayfield, United Kingdom) on 21 Feb 2014
The point divides into two whilst painting. Very frustrating. Shirley Norman (Haverfordwest,, United Kingdom) on 26 Feb 2014
