Paint Brush Polecat Hair Flat
The polecat brush is somewhat softer than the cows hair brush while still retaining its strength. Its fine properties when using watercolours mean it is widely used in art therapy.
Bristles made from Polecat hair with a birch handle. The Birch wood is obtained from sustainable forestry in germany and the Baltic States. Handle is 30cm long on the 6mm 8mm 10mm 12mm and 14mm brush. 31cm for the 16mm 32cm for the 18mm 33cm for the 20mm and 33cm for the 22mm brush.
The wax used to fuse the handle is based on natural ingredients. The handle has a beautiful natural appearance and feels a bit rougher than a lacqered coating which improves the grip. The special wax coating protects the handle from water and paint.
To ensure long life of your quality brush we recommend drying by hanging the brush with the bristles down. This drains the water from the bristles and protects the glue in the connection point between the hairs and the handle. No synthetic or chemical cleaning products are recommended - simply rinse your brush with lukewarm water before drying.
