Protégé Wash - 7510 Series

With a sizable head constructed from soft, flat hairs, a wash does what the name implies: laying down big washes of liquid. But, watercolorists know that a wash can also perform the inverse, controlling wet spots by soaking them up. This brush is on a short handle.

Protégé Script/Rigger - 7500L Series

The liner brush is similar to the script brush, just with a smaller and even narrower shape. If a project calls for incredibly tight control, a liner brush is your answer. This brush is on a short handle.

Good For The Price, For Sure

A really nice, sharp point, excellent for detail work. But not much of a belly on this #3 size brush, for my taste. Perhaps a larger size brush will have that feature? A good brush for the money nonetheless. I'm glad I gave it a chance and will see what I think of larger brushes in this line for my miniatures painting.

Trekell Art Supplies

Hi Christopher, Thank you for your feedback! Our Onyx Quill Mops have the biggest belly out of our brushes, but do not have as sharp of a point as the Protégé Brushes. I have attached the link at the bottom for you to check out! https://www.trekell.com/products/onyx-synthetic-squirrel Thank you, The Trekell Team
