Protégé - Synthetic Kolinsky

DESCRIPTION

Trekell’s Protégé line is an ingeniously engineered synthetic alternative to Kolinsky sable-hair, a classic brush filament known for its retention and performance properties. The Protégé round brush has inherited those traits, boasting the same thirsty belly and insanely sharp point as its ancestor. The big difference is the increased durability. So, while those old, expensive hairs are increasingly harder to come by, a Protégé will always be there for you.

Good but can be improved.

I use them for comic book inking and the #2 is most suitable for fine lifework. However; after a few strokes the hairs splay which is not good for the stroke rhythm—you end up paying too much attention to the hairs and it is distracting. As a replacement for Windsor&newton and/or Raphael watercolor brushes the protege brushes are a low cost addition to my toolset—they would be ideal if the hairs stayed in alignment but for the price I’ll take em!!

Protege-Synthetic Kolinsky

I provided them to my students in a workshop and they loved the brush. It holds paint well and it can be used for a full stroke or a fine point.

Perfect tapered point

The Protege brushes have a long tapered point and full belly... great for line work and hatching! The're the only reasonably priced watercolor brushes I've found with the ideal shape. Pleas don't stop making them!

To My Surprise

Since taking a class with watercolor artist Claudia Nice, I wanted the best kolinsky brushes. However, I decided to try the Prot�g� synthetic kolinsky. I was shocked how pointed they stay and the amount of water they hold. Loving them so much.
