Pure Kolinsky Sable

Pure Kolinsky Sable

The Kolinsky (Mustela Siberica) is a species of the Mink family, a member of the Weasel clan and a native of Siberia and northeast China. There is no doubt Kolinsky is the best hair available for the manufacture of artists’ brushes due to being conical in shape, strong in character with a long tapered point and thick belly. The excellent snap & spring together with immense liquid holding capacity make them a first choice for watercolourists. The high cost of the hair being the only major drawback (usually weight for weight three times the price of gold). Once used however the difference compared to others is well worth the difference in price. Consider Kolinsky Sable a long term investment. Personally as a brushmaker this is my absolute favourite hair to work with, indeed a privilege.

Series 1. Pointed Kolinsky Sable Mop
I have been making this style of brush for many years, the name 'Mop' usually implies large dense brush for applying a wash but I believe my Kolinsky Sable Mops are much more than this!  I have created a unique style of brush for watercolour.  Unlike the more popular ferrule construction these are hand made and tied into a man made quill style 'sleeve' then wired on the outside to secure the bundle and head to the handle.  The end result fashions a real gem of a watercolour brush.  Holding masses of liquid, tapered to a s...More info.

Series 11. Pure Kolinsky 'Almond' Filbert
Designed and created by talking to several professional artists who fancied a brush capable of three main functions.  Having a tapered point and a flat body, the 'belly' falling in such a place to hold the liquid and flow on the paper like no other.  Turned sideways will draw, pointed sharply for detail yet with pressure will wash and flood the paper.  'A little gem!' ...More info.
