Paul Jackson - "The Trekell Kolinsky brushes are the perfect tool. The brush responds
exceptionally to every movement. It's ample belly holds a huge volume
of paint and finishes in a sharp point. Even the largest brush can
easily get in tightest spaces. The brush springs back to the perfect
shape repeatedly and stands up to every abuse I put it through.
Obviously a lot of attention to detail is put into the crafting of
these tools. They are themselves a work of art. It's almost a shame to
wet them for the first time, but they are truly a joy to paint with."
Chet Zar - "Oil painting is a complicated process and requires a lot of concentration.
Dealing with inferior tools is a headache I don't need. Trekell brushes have
given me one less thing to worry about. And the fact that they are
reasonably priced and made in the USA is just icing on the cake for me"
Jay Alders - "Knowing the tools of my craft are an essential part of the results I achieve as
a full-time fine artist. I have tried just about every brand and type of
artist's brush that's available and I can honestly say that I am thrilled with
the craftsmanship & qualities that the Trekell brushes offer me. I am
partial to the synthetic hair Trekell brushes, which I find have the perfect
amount of spring and flow for the detailed rendering that I do."
Catherine Hillis - "I like to use the Kolinsky Watercolor brushes by Trekell. My favorites are the
number six brush and smaller for the fine detail work I do when painting my
complicated figures and urban scenes."
Kris Lewis - "My Trekell Brushes and brush restorer have kept the need to replace my small
round brushes to an absolute minimum. I've been very impressed with the
durability and excellent quality of all my Trekell Brushes."
Koo Schadler - "Most egg tempera artists work with kolinsky sable brushes. However I've had
great success painting in tempera with synthetic brushes too - if the quality of the synthetic is good
enough. Trekell's Golden Taklon Round brushes work beautifully. They hold the
paint well, have the necessary amount of spring, and are so well priced. I use
them in all of my own work as well as recommend them to my tempera students."
