Winsor & Newton Artist's Water Colour Sable Brushes are handmade Kolinsky Sable Hair brushes, with Birchwood handles and seamless nickel ferrules. The Artist's Water Colour Sable brush range has been created based upon the most popular and useful brush shapes for water colour painting. In addition to the quality of materials and method of manufacture, the Artist's water colour sable brush has the added benefit of a unique Winsor & Newton sculptured handle with a matte finish for the ultimate in comfort whilst painting.
The Kolinsky sable hair used in Artist's Water Colour Sable Brushes is specially selected from only the finest available, sourced from Eastern Siberia. Kolinsky Sable hair is made up of millions of tiny scales, which when grouped together in a brush head are capable of carrying a vast amount of colour. This also ensures colour is released in a controlled manner, evenly and smoothly. These brushes have a pronounced belly and are tapered at the tip to a perfect point. The constitution of Kolinsky sable hair is such that it has a natural tendency to spring back on itself. This means, the brush shape is naturally maintained during painting, giving the artist more control. Kolinsky Sable brushes are extremely durable.
The Birchwood handle has a unique sculptured profile with two 'bellies'. The Central dip allows the brush to sit comfortably in your hand and combines very nicely with the comfort of the matte finish. The second belly towards the end of the brush handle allows for different painting positions. The variety is particularly good with the larger size brushes when covering wider areas of the paper. A seamless nickel ferrule is used to fit the head to the handle. This prevents corrosion of the ferrule and handle when in contact with water.
The range includes 4 brush head shapes to suit all needs:
A round bellied water colour brush. Excellent for washes as well as fine detail work. Available in 12 sizes from 00 to 12.
