Series 66. Pure Kolinsky Filbert
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 Series 66 are often referred to as 'cats tongue' in shape, or 'the petal brush' due to the immediate mark this shape of head makes. If you prefer the longer length of filbert, take a look at our Series 11 Pure Kolinsky 'Almond' Filbert or even larger, the Series 731 Kolinsky Sable Filbert 'The Big One!'
If you prefer a synthetic alternative, try our Red Dot Collection Short Filberts or the Red Dot Long Pointed Filberts.
A favourite with botanical artists and miniaturists.
The Series 66 are favoured by watercolourists, but work well in oils too. They are particularly favoured by portrait painters in Oils (for the corners of the eyes, crevaces of the nose and mouth etc).
