Winsor & Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Brushes are the finest quality Kolinsky Sable Brushes. More than any other tool, the brushes are a direct and fluid extension of the artists hand, eye and expressive vision. It is with that principle in mind that Winsor & Newton has crafted fine artists brushes for over 150 years, earning a reputation for making the worlds finest from the very best raw materials.
The unique features of a Series 7 brush are its wider belly coupled with a long tapered point. This is achieved by Winsor & Newtons exclusive hair selection (at W&N they do not rely on a hair supplier to select hair from them, they prepare the hair entirely by hand at their factory in England), preparation and method of manufacture.
Series 7 brushes are larger than the conventional British brush sizes and also differ to the numbering systems used in different countries. Within the standard Series 7 range there are 13 sizes from 000 up to number 10. When raw materials are available sizes 11, 12 & 14 are available additionally.
The Kolinsky Sable Hair used in the Series 7 brush is of the finest quality. Only 5% of the available hair is selected for the Series 7 Brush, the rest is rejected as it does not live up to the Series 7 standard. The Series 7 brush also has deep double crimps for security and a non-corroding Nickle plated Brass Ferrule. Series 7 brushes are short handle brushes (black polished handle) with a round pointed tip.
Series 7 brushes are hand-made in England by our expert brush makers, each with over 10 years of experience. In larger sizes, each brush is packed into an individual box with a tag indicating the name of the Series 7 brush maker who made the brush.
The standards of quality for this brush were set in 1866, when Her Majesty Queen Victoria gave orders that Winsor & Newton should produce the very finest water colour brushes in her favourite size, the No.7.
Each brush comes to a crisp point and snaps back into shape during use, with the right degree of spring to allow superior control between the brush and surface. The colour flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough colour carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow flowing gestural strokes.
