An artist quality paintbrush for artists or the childrens' classroom.

Mercurius has been looking for a perfect synthetic brush which can be used for veiling water-colouring and wet-on-wet painting. We have now finally found a brush that is a break-through in synthetic brushes not only equal to our natural brushes but even exceeds their capabilities. The brushes are soft flexible resistant to deformation and the absorption and release capacity is very high.

Just like its classic equal with natural cow hair this synthetic brush is a favorite in the Steiner school classroom.

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.
