Kolinsky Sable Brushes for Oils
Kolinsky Round – 7162 Long Handle: The round is a very difficult brush to make correctly. You cannot use a watercolor head on a long handle to get a good oil or acrylic brush. In watercolor, you are pushing very thin applications of colored water. Because there is very little resistance, you need a full bodied brush with great snap but little muscle. With oils and acrylics you will be pushing very thick applications of heavy paste-like paint. Here muscle is required.
Kolinsky Flat – 7163 Long Handle: This flat brush is full and lush and comes to a razor edge.
Kolinsky Filbert – 7160 Long Handle: The shape of the filbert is achieved by gently moving the hair in the fingertips of the brush maker to achieve that perfect oval shape. A knife can never touch the hair, the tips are never cut or trimmed.
Kolinsky Bright - 7161Long Handle: This brush is full bodied and comes to a razor edge.
