A limited edition series of fine blue squirrel hair brushes!
For centuries, natural blue squirrel hair has been one of the most cherished hairs for making high quality artists' paint brushes. This traditional hair is extremely soft and highly absorbent, and offers several advantages over modern synthetic filament brushes. Made from the ultra-fine tail-hair of Russian blue squirrels, these brushes are ideal for holding massive amounts of color, especially watercolors and inks, and the hair acts as a reservoir for long, continuous strokes. Preferred by watercolorists, iconographers, calligraphers, lettering artists and more, blue squirrel hair brushes are the perfect choice for artwork in watercolor, gouache, ink, egg tempera, casein, and even oils.
Now you can indulge in this traditional paint brush with new Creative Mark Squirrel LE brushes and sets! Each Squirrel LE brush is entirely handmade: the brush head is hand-shaped and tied, set into seamless ferrules and attached to the short, lacquered wooden handles. Available in 6 standard French Round sizes as well as a complete set, these brushes create sumptuous washes and come to a fine point for detail work. But hurry, Squirrel LE brushes from Creative Mark are Limited Edition and are only available while supplies last!
