Winsor & Newton
Winsor & Newton Black Fitch Oil Brushes
These beautiful brushes are made by Winsor & Newton, one of the world's leaders in high quality art supplies. The hair is natural black sable (sometimes called fitch hair). Fitch hair is not as soft as red sable, but softer than hog bristle; which makes these brushes ideal for subtle blending and glazing with oil paints. The lacquered wood handles are purposefully thicker at the end of the brush, which gives a unique and perfect balance.
