Replacement for the much loved BR50 Miracle Wedge brush, which has been discontinued by the manufacturer. This brush has a similar ferrule and resilliant synthetic bristles.
Phyllis Macaluso recommends the brush saying, "This triangle brush is a miracle tool for creating quick little watercolor motifs for envelopes or any hand lettered piece. A great watercolour brush for beginners. With a few simple strokes it is possible for everyone to create beautiful florals and foliates."
The standard brush recommended by John Stevens, Carl Rohrs and other instructors for chisel-edged alphabets. Golden nylon flat watercolor brush with seamless nickel ferrules and clear plastic handle. Durable and responsive.
Winsor and Newton Series 995 flat water color brush.
For fine detail, lines & washes. A traditional and popular head shape for all-purpose water color work. Can be used for broad strokes yet it will also form a sharp point. They possess excellent color holding capacity, sensitivity, spring and durability. Recommended by Michael Sull.
High quality brushes made from a mix of sable and synthetic fibres. They are ideal for water color and suitable for use with acrylic. For watercolor media, while today's synthetic brushes perform excellently, pure sable still has the edge. With a blend you can get performance that is close to sable at a price that is close to synthetic. The blend of hair in Sceptre Gold II also gives you added benefits. Sable hair has excellent spring while the high quality synthetic filaments ensure that the brushes are soft enough to work the color but also have a strong snap so they return back to their original shape with ease. The high proportion of sable in Sceptre Gold II gives the brushes considerably more ability to make larger washes in one stroke than normal synthetic brushes, and the hairs are tapered to a fine point, giving the brush control for detailed work.
Winsor and Newton Sceptre Gold 101 Brush Round Short Handle
These brushes can be used for chisel-edged brush writing and watercolor painting. Carl Rohrs finds these water media brushes to be good for lettering. He recommends the W&N 995 (BR01) for ½" & larger. Synthetic bristles.
John Stevens uses these round ferrule, chisel-edged Rekab brushes for smaller Roman lettering as well as for a variety of other styles. John uses these along with flat ferrule chisel-edged brushes for his brush lettering. These quality sable brushes, imported from Israel, with proper care will last for 20 years or more. These are called "Showcard" or "One Stroke Brushes." They are more versatile than flat ferrule, chisel edge brushes, but they take a bit more skill to use. John recommends the #5 to start with. For a wider range of sizes, he suggests adding the #3 & #7.
This brush is a favorite of Carl Rohrs. The superior quality of the Kolinsky sable hair points well and, when loaded with water, will return to its original shape. This size 7 round travel brush has a gold-plated brass handle with a matching cap. When closed, the brush will fit neatly into your pocket or in your art supply box.
