Signet Brushes
Robert Simmons "Signet" Hog Bristle Brushes
Excellent quality, oil painting brushes. Each brush is handmade using select quality, naturally curved imported Chungking bristle. Every brush is formed with the bristles interlocked and set deep in extra long ferrules. The hair is placed so each bristle curves inwards resulting in a brush that gives a completely controlled stroke. Resilient, but sturdy, Signet brushes handle the heaviest paint with ease. Signet provides a sensitivity of response and a versatility in painting that has made it the preferred oil brush for years. Signet brushes hold their shape and resilience overs years of rigorous use. That is how Signet has earned its reputation in the marketplace for performance and durability. Signet's fine construction means artists can depend on the performance of each brush over the life of the brush. Signet's bristles have long "flags" also known as "split-ends" which characteristically hold maximum amounts of color. In the manufacturing process, each brush is hand cupped to retain these natural flags.

Slotted Brushes

Slotted Brushes
This handmade brush is designed for encaustic painters that use a hot air assist in their work. This technique involves using a hot air gun of the type used in stripping furniture to heat the paint while working (hair dryers just won't get hot enough). Made of Pure Chungking Hog Bristle, and not brass filament, these brushes do require different handling in order to protect the natural hair from intense heat. Natural hair will single if the heat source is too close. With the proper technique, this brush will apply large, bold, textured strokes of wax color rapidly.

The slotted design allows the hot air of the heat gun to flow through the brush, keeping paint fluid during application. Another advantage to this Slotted Brush design is that it allows for an easy washout, permitting quick color changes.
