Series 88. Pure Sable Riggers
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.
The Series 88 rigger shape is similar to a Pointed Round, but with much longer hair, also referred to as a "script" or a "liner" brush. These are ideal for long, continuous strokes and have a large carrying capacity. They hold an excellent point.
A favourite for landscape painters, needing thin lines for example when painting telephone cables, or fences. Portraiture artists love them for thin hairs, eye lashes and such.
If you prefer a synthetic alternative, try our Red Dot Collection Riggers.
Please note: Sizes 10/0, 3/0, 2/0 and 0 are also available on the long handle but due to their delicate nature, they are easily broken so extra care must be taken, please be gentle!
