SERIES 91. PURE SABLE 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.
The oval end of the Series 91 can be used to both make sweeping strokes but also fine lines when held vertically. Also known as a "cat's tongue", these brushes have a beautiful point which allows for fine detail.
Favourites in portraiture and botanical art.
If you prefer a synthetic alternative try our Red Dot Short Filbert.
