The All-Natural Connoisseur Black and White Hog Bristle brush blends premium quality hair to provide a fluid touch, spring and control. The addition of the Black bristle strengthens the brush to pick up, push and spread heavier bodied paints over large areas. Resilient, interlocked bristles are made with the natural curve and flag of each bristle. Excellent for use by experienced painters who may apply firmer pressure to the canvas, yet are supple enough for the beginner. Copper ferrule and matte black handle. Manufactured by time-honored craftsmen in Japan for Connoisseur Brush.
