Q&A (4)
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.

17th April 2014 Reviewed by Shirley Taylor I actually use these brushes for oil painting, as I do fine art work and can't use hog and all those other oil designed brushes and they last well as I look after them
