Kazan Squirrel Hair Brush for Watercolor
Perfect for large watercolor washes, these pure Kazan Squirrel brushes can hold a lot of liquid. They are so great for varnishing – it goes on smooth, with no bubbles!
These brushes are unique! For many years, fine quality Squirrel hair was unavailable because of the restrictions caused by the “Cold War”. Today, we have a fantastic source for natural hair and, even better than that, a marvelous team of old world brush makers.
Our brush factory negotiates directly with the fur trappers in Siberia for the first choice of the very best prized Kazan Squirrel hair. Each brush is expertly hand-crafted. The hair is carefully selected, processed and prepared for the final stages of brush craft. The brush heads are hand-tied, glued, fitted to seamless ferrules, and then glued and crimped onto natural wooden handles. Artists will be amazed at the performance of these fantastic tools.
