Finding high quality synthetic brushes has long been a challenge for watercolor painters or vegan artists. Now Creative Mark has partnered with a leading synthetic hair manufacturer to craft an animal-friendly brush with all the benefits of natural hair, and none of the drawbacks! New Mimik brushes feature a revolutionary synthetic hair that accurately mimics a blend of natural squirrel and Kolinsky sable hair, but without harming any animals. This innovative synthetic blend imitates squirrel hair in its ability to hold copious amounts of color for large washes and color lay down, but also features the superb control, response and sharp edge so loved in Kolinsky sable brushes. With short, blue-grey stained wooden handles and matte nickel-plated brass ferrules, Mimik brushes are available in Round, Rigger, Filbert, Flat Wash and Wash Mate shapes, as well as a convenient value pack. Finally, a watercolor brush with the color capacity of squirrel, the fine point of sable, and the satisfaction of knowing that no animal was endangered in the making of the brush!
