Not just for Watercolour!
While watercolour is our main theme around here, these brushes can be used in various applications and mediums like acrylic, oil, gouache, and more. They are great for miniature painting for sculptures, ceramics, and more.
The Rigger Brush
This brush is essential for creating smooth, flowing outlines. Also referred to as a Liner or Script brush for that very reason! The bristles of this brush are longer than your average brush, which allows it to hold more water and paint for hassle free line work with a consistent width.
The #6 Round Brush
This brush is a painter’s go-to, so we decided to include it in this set of essentials! Our exclusive synthetic fur combination makes it a favourite for many artists and crafters. This brush is slightly less pointed than the #6 brush in our Premium Watercolour Brush Set, allowing for more coverage options without the razor sharp point.
#1 Fine Detail Round Brush
For all of those tiny spaces and details, this brush will become one of your go-tos! With a length of about 9mm and our finest tip yet, this brush will get into all of those hard to paint places.
#2 Filbert Brush
The filbert brush has a flat base like a flat brush, but is rounded at the top. They work great for blending and creating rounded edges like flower petals. Use it on its side for creating thin lines, or use it flat to create thicker, smooth lines.
