BR38. WN Artists' Water Color Sable
WN Artists' Water Color Sable Round

Excellent for fine detail, lines and washes. The round-bellied watercolor brush is the most popular watercolor brush. Quality Kolinsky sable hair, birchwood handles and seamless nickel ferrules all put together by hand to create a truly excellent brush. Has been improved to ensure a perfect point. Matte finish handle.

Recommended by Valerie Weilmuenster for illuminated letters as a good and less expensive alternative to the Winsor & Newton Series 7.

I108. Dr. Martin's Pen White
Dr. Martin's Pen-White

A great white ink for pointed pen work! 1oz dropper bottle. A sell-out at both Odyssey and IAMPETH. Can be thinned with water if necessary.

"The new ink is Dr Martin's Pen White, which sold out at Odyssey. I loved it so much that I went back to the supply store and bought a second bottle. Pat Blair tried it, and it worked beautifully out of the bottle with her Spencerian script. No mixing required. The dropper made dispensing easy. It did get a bit thicker as I was using it, and I added a bit of water to the dropper. All my pieces (white on dark paper) at Osyssey and at Iampeth were done using that ink. -- Aline Chan
