This item is a 100% handmade Marmot hair 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. Marmot is similar to squirrel but has more body to it and a larger point. The hairs come to a modest point when saturated with watercolor. It makes a great watercolor round brush, but also works well with ink and gouache.
