Soft, sturdy, goat hair is utilized to the watercolorist's advantage in a full mop brush with the unique Connoisseur clear acrylic handle with scraper edge. Ferrules are nickel plated. Each brush holds large amounts of water, which makes them ideal for laying broad washes and working wet in wet.
The soft Hake are ideal for laying in large areas of water or watercolor. They can also be used as subtraction tools, for absorbing excess media or "picking up" watercolor or ink. Great for fast and loose painting styles, washes, and laying in background color! The soft, natural hair is glued and then literally stitched right onto the wooden handle. Therefore, these brushes are not meant to be left immersed in water media for long periods of time.
