A new development has been the combination of squirrel and taklon.TAKLON For point and spring, SQUIRREL for colour carrying capacity. This mix gives a superb brush
- For watercolour at a much lower price than sable.
- Traditionally watercolourists have used brushes made from squirrel, however the hair is expensive.
20% of the SQUIRREL / TAKLON brush hair is made from blue Squirrel. This hair is a lot lighter than the taklon so the actual hair volume for the squirrel component seems much greater.
Squirrel retains lots of water and when combined with taklon it makes a perfectly affordable watercolour brush
This brush is made from a modern synthetic hair which keeps its point beautifully when placed in water.
This brush is endorsed by world renowned water colourist, David Taylor, the author of the book “Solving the mystery of watercolour”.
Originally he tested this brush with a synthetic / sable mixture but he found that the hair spread when pressure was applied.
The unique synthetic hair meets his exacting standards
