Onyx - Synthetic Squirrel - 6" Short Handle

DESCRIPTION

Designed with control in mind, Trekell’s Onyx brushes unite precision with unhampered flow, all without the fear of flare outs. These brushes come on a 6" short, black and silver-lacquered handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules. Not the qualities you expect from synthetic bristles, right? And yet, like Trekell’s other synthetic brushes, an Onyx mimics nature incredibly well. We bet you can’t tell that these weren’t once part of a squirrel. So, the only difference is price. So, watercolorists, why wait? An Onyx brush will soak up what you need and paint exactly what you want.

Script - 8055 Series

The script brush's long hairs are formed into a narrow point. Tasks requiring delicate details, such as highlighting, outlining, and lettering, are in this brush's wheelhouse because its paint-carrying capacity also allows for long, unbroken strokes. Supposedly named for its original use: painting ships' rigging. This brush is on a short handle.

Fantastic Burshes

These brushes are wonderful! You can feel the professional quality after one stroke. They are quite soft. Which is great when laying down paint. But I have to get use to them I usually work with a firmer brush. But other than that I recommend these to any painter! You got to get you some!!!

Skip other synthetic squirrel brushes

I don't use natural hair brushes. I've tried squirrel imitation rounds from Princeton, Escoda, DaVinci, and Mimik. In my experience if it holds a lot of water it won't have a fine point. These round brushes changed the game for me. The point is super fine, and they hold just as much if not more water than my go to brushes. They're the kind of brush that doesn't ever feel like it's getting in your way. Because they hold so much water you're going to need a good grasp of water control to get the most out of these. If you're looking for synthetic squirrel brushes, buy these. These are an amazing deal considering how expensive the better quality synthetic squirrel brushes are.

Onyx - Synthetic Squirrel

I am a fairly new watercolor painter. I jumped in to it a couple winters ago. I have enjoyed it. The brushes I've used were slightly firmer. Synthetic squirrel is very soft and certain brushed don't come back to 'reform" and it felt like a mop, however some of the rounds are actually very comfortable, balanced, and useable for me. Remember I'm really new at w/c. I may eventually like them.
