Our Pure Squirrel Pointed Wash brushes are made from the finest quality Pure Russian Blue Squirrel hair, which is ideal for water colour washes. These hairs are very fine and relatively thin. The brushes are conical in shape with thick bellies, which enables the brush to hold a large amount of colour. They come to a very fine point giving control with washes and the naturally soft hair ensures their responsiveness. These hand crafted brushes use natural goose quill for the ferrule which is more flexible and responsive than a metal ferrule. Apart from use with Water Colour, they are useful for gouache, silk painting and any fluid colour application.
