Description

This Winsor & Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Brushes Wallet is positively regal. Series 7 brushes were created in 1866, when Queen Victoria herself ordered Winsor & Newton to create the very finest watercolour brushes in her favourite size: the No. 7.

  • Even today, they have a strong claim to being the world’s finest watercolour brush.
  • They’re handmade from only the finest pure Kolinsky sable hair, the very finest sable, famous for its strength and its unparalleled ability to hold water, making it perfect for watercolour washes.
  • Series 7 brushes have rust-proof, seamless nickel-plated ferrules with short black polished handles.

These top-of-the-range brushes really are something special, and we think you’ll see the difference in your work. This set contains an assortment of four Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Brushes.

Q&A (6)
Q Hi, what size brushes come with this set? Is it the ones pictured? Kind regards, Lucy
A

The brushes in this set are sizes 00, 2, 3 and 4

Q hi, what size is the wallet please? Thank you.
A

This wallet is 25cm x 17.8cm.

Q What are the benefits to using a synthetic brush as oppose to a natural hair brush?
A

Using natural hair for the bristles of a brush as oppose to using synthetic materials is a more traditional practice. Natural hair brushes tend to carry and hold more colour than a synthetic brush. Sable hair brushes taper naturally, so when added to a brush creates a fine point. This is a quality that can advantage the application of watercolour paint and is not as easily obtained by synthetic brushes.

Q My brush has misshapen over time. How can I rectify this?
A

If your brush has misshapen, you can do so by soaking in boiling water and allowing brush to reshape. Please keep in mind that if your brush is resting on its bristles, this will affect its shape so take care when soaking. Should you wish to retain the point of your brush, you can do so by dipping in gum Arabic and reshaping. Make sure you leave your brush to dry fully before using after applying gum Arabic, as the medium could potentially change the effect of the paint you are using.

Q What can I use to clean sable brushes?
A

Sable brushes are typically used for watercolour, and can be cleaned easily with warm water. A sable brush should not be cleaned with harsh substances such as turpentine as this may cause the brush to degrade. You may be able to use a colourless and unscented PH neutral soap to clean your sable brush should you wish, although this is not necessary for cleaning watercolour paint from your brush.

3rd August 2016 Reviewed by Roy Hughes Nice quality brushes. I am using them to create precise curvilinear painted lines on canvas (yes I know, I have good reason though and I am using two media it does make sense).

The little zip wallet is cute and plenty of spaces on which to invest more money! I am impressed with them. My first sable.

30th June 2016 Reviewed by Jan Craig Good shape. Holds plenty of colour. Take care with the smaller sizes as they can wear out quickly if used for mixing. I like to keep a larger cheaper brush (no 3) for colour mixing.
