S738. Shell Gold Tablet
Powdered gold with a gum arabic binder. 23.75 carat. Comes in a transparent plastic container with a lid. Close lid after use. Use with a brush or pen to add real gold decoration to manuscripts, scrolls and calligraphic works. Shell gold can complement areas of gold leaf or it can be used alone.

We have discontinued the larger sizes because they did not offer any cost savings. Our small shell gold is approximately 7.5mm diameter x 4mm thick. However, size & weight varies slightly depending on the amount of residual water.

Shell gold prices are based on the worldwide gold market and may be different from what is printed in our catalog.

BR12. Rekab Brush
Rekab Brushes Series 311

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.

#3 -- 1/8"
#4 -- 3/16"
#5 -- 1/4"
#6 -- 5/16"
#7 -- 3/8"

BR26. W&N Sceptre Gold 101 Brush
W&N Sceptre Gold 101 Brush, Round, Short Handle

For fine detail, lines & washes. A traditional and popular head shape for all-purpose watercolor 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 watercolor 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.
