Paintbrush, Cow's Hair, Shorter Handle for Young Children
Specially designed brush for the younger years.
Children often find it hard to keep a long handle properly balanced in their small hands. The specially designed shorter-handled brush is perfect for young children.
The brush has soft bristles made of cow hair and a rust proof, closed ferrule. It is finished with a white wax coating.
Having a flat bristle head, these brushes have an optimal paint retention for a rich colour application.
Suitable for all watercolouring techniques.

Why are our paint brushes waxed and not lacquered?
Our brushes are finished with a natural wax. This natural wax protects your brush from any adverse affect that may be caused by paint and water. If lacquered, the lacquer on the brush handle can crack and peel.
The wax we use gives the handle a slightly rough feeling. This helps to improve grip.
Caring for your paint brush
A quality brush used with care, cleaned and stored properly, will last many years without any loss of hair or shape.
Rinse with lukewarm water after use. Do not use any synthetic or chemical product when painting or cleaning.
It is very important you hang your brush to dry with the bristles down. This will drain the water and dry the brush, ensuring the glue will not dissolve in the connection point between the hairs and the handle.
