Silver Brush's versatile and durable Golden Natural brushes are available in an extensive selection of sizes and shapes for oils, alkyds, acrylics and watercolors. Golden Natural's synthetic blend duplicates the needle-sharp points and fine chisel edges of the best red sable. Natural hair and golden taklon fibers allow these springy brushes to hold exceptional color. Each brush head is precisely blended, skillfully cupped and carefully set in a seamless nickel plated brass ferrule. Beautiful hardwood handles are finished in a red wine stain with silver tips; Series 2008S Square Wash has clear beveled plastic handles. This brush is recommended by teachers and authors in more books, magazine articles and pattern packs than any other brush!
