This remarkable synthetic brush mimics the look and feel of Mongoose hair. It is stiffer than sable, but softer than your average bristle. Like mongoose hair, the brush is variegated in shades of ivory, gold and brown. Because it is a synthetic brush, it is more durable than natural hair and less prone to damage from solvents or paint. Suitable for oil or acrylic painting, each has gold ferrules attached to long, lacquered handles. Sizes run like sable brushes. Glaze brush with paddle handle.
