The unique blend of natural squirrel hair and black synthetic filament in Black Velvet brushes makes them ideal working tools for watercolorists, silk painters, and artists working with inks, dyes, acrylics, or gouache.
Squirrel hair holds large amounts of color and releases it with perfect control. By itself, though, squirrel hair is delicate, so it has been blended with a synthetic to resist wear and maintain a wonderful snap and spring. The soft blend allows multiple layer glazing without disturbing previous colors, yet it’s firm enough to lift color with a gentle scrub.
Black Velvet brushes feature polished black ferrules, carefully fitted to gloss black handles, each with a distinctive silver neck band.
This set contains three brushes: one round (size 8), one script (size 1), and one oval wash (3/4 in.).
