A unique blend of natural squirrel hair and black synthetic filament creates ideal working tools for the watercolorist. Squirrel hair holds large amounts of color and releases it with perfect control. Maintains a wonderful snap and spring all the while keeping the delicacy associated with squirrel hair. Soft blend of squirrel and synthetic allows multiple layer glazing without disturbing previous colors, yet is firm enough to lift color with a gentle scrub. Features polished black ferrules fitted to gloss black handles, each with a distinctive silver neck band.
