PAINT BRUSHES by Rosemary & co
The Kolinsky (Mustela Siberica) is a species of the Mink family,
a member of the Weasel clan and a native of Siberia and
northeast China. There is no doubt Kolinsky is the best hair
available for the manufacture of artists’ brushes due to being
conical in shape, strong in character with a long tapered point
and thick belly. The excellent snap & spring together with
immense liquid holding capacity make them a first choice for
watercolourists. The high cost of the hair being the only major
drawback (usually weight for weight three times the price of gold).
Once used however the difference compared to others is well worth
the difference in price. Consider Kolinsky Sable a long term
investment. Personally as a brushmaker this is my absolute favourite
hair to work with, indeed a privilege.
Series 77. Pure Sable by Rosemary & co.
Ideal for watercolour and oil, the natural characteristics of the Red Sable hair offer a good "belly",
allowing a liquid holding capacity greater than, for example "Nylon". Brights (short flats) allow a much
sturdier brush with a stronger "snap" creating sharper edges and control. Also ideal for blocking in and impasto
