The hair you choose for your paint brush is key to your painting performance, if you want a brush that will last Sable is best. Professional artist paint brushes use Kolinsky Sable, best known due to its resilient and supple frame, sourced from Siberian weasels, these brush tips maintain their shape and performance for years.
If you’re just starting to use the medium the best watercolour brushes to use are synthetic, we have a wide range of brushes, including starter sets that are ideal gifts for the novice artist in your life. All our watercolour paint brushes come in a variety of sizes and styles including fan/mop brushes, round and even Hake brushes made with goat hair.
Finally, we also have water brushes, these are a great alternative to paint brushes especially if you are more of a travel painter who needs more portable art equipment. This clever design contains the water that you’d usually have in a separate pot, squeezing the body to wet the bristles. Water brushes are also perfect for filling in small spaces that need a pop of colour, or for spreading the pigment of your watercolour pencil across the paper even more.
