Series 81. Pure Sable Domed Filbert
Ideal for Watercolours and Oils (the latter usually preferred on the long handles). The natural characteristics of the Red Sable hair offer a good "belly", allowing a liquid holding capacity greater than, the Golden Synthetic for example.
This hair has a beautiful spring and upon retouching the paper, will flow and release water similiar to a fountain pen. For Oils, the Red Sable are a good choice if one can afford, and where a softness with a delicate spring is required.
We designed The Pure Sable Domed Filbert Series 81's with the oil artist in mind who requires a 'fuller' body to a filbert and a nice domed shaped head rather than the 'cats tongue' style which tends to be more pointed.
These have proved popular in both oils and watercolour. For oil artists many use the Series 81's for the finer detail such as in figurative work, around the nose, lips and eyes and so on.
If you prefer a synthetic alternative see the Eclipse Domed Filberts.
