October 20, 2006, Newsletter Issue #40: Kolinsky Sable Brushes

Tip of the Week

Kolinsky sable brushes are most often considered amongst the best brushes. Kolinsky brush hair is very soft and has a fine point to it. Its structure is such that the hairs cling closely together when wet, producing a fine point. Because of their strength, spring and absorbency, red sable brushes are often the brush of choice for watercolor artists because they hold liquid the longest and retain a fine point. Oil painters also use sable brushes for producing smooth, flat, precise strokes.
