This item is a 100% handmade squirrel hair pointed round paintbrush. I personally clean the tails/pelts, remove the hair, comb, stack, and condition the hair. The hair on each brush is permanently glued into the ferrule or handle, making it sturdy and durable. All handles are wood and finished so they do not warp or crack when exposed to water and paint. These brushes are perfect for the beginner or expert painter!
Making brushes is a passion of mine and I take great care at every step of the process. Every brush is unique and has a personality of its own. Squirrel is unsurpassed at its ability to hold paint. Watercolor easily releases from the pointed tip, allowing for detail work as well as working larger areas. The hairs come to a nice point when saturated with water.
