Description

Loxley's Merlin Hake Brushes are soft goat-hair brushes with wooden handles.

  • They're flat and wide, so they're ideal for covering large areas, particularly with colour washes, sizing or glue.
  • They're suitable for acrylic, oil, tempera and poster colour and soft enough to use on even the most delicate papers.
  • They hold water exceptionally well, so are perfect for applying thin media.

What is a hake brush?

A hake brush is a soft, flat brush, used for large washes in watercolour painting. These type of brushes hold a lot of water, which makes it perfect for wetting your painting surface and picking up excess paint.

This set contains three Loxley Merlin Hake Brushes

20th March 2019 Reviewed by Finnian Smith Really nice, lightweight and good quality. I use these to apply water when pressing cloth i’m tailoring because they hold a lot of water and the natural goat hair bristles are sympathetic with the natural fibres of the cloths I use; when heat’s applied they give off a goatey smell as well!
