Princeton: Best Synthetic Sable watercolour brushes are made with a blend of golden taklon hairs in a variety of different diameters. Developed for Princeton by master Japanese brush-maker Naohide Takamoto, these brushes take the 'Tak' from Takamoto to give the ‘taklon’ fibres their distinctive name. Princeton brush fibres, though made with synthetic bristles, have the appearance of genuine sable hairs. The fibres are held in place with a golden ferrule and the handles are fashioned from marbled red hardwood (the wash brushes have clear acrylic handles). This brush style absorbs water easily and paints supple strokes with a natural snap. Princeton brushes in the 4050 Series resist even the heaviest of painting wear and always return to a tight point or crisp edge after use.
Almost 20 years ago, Princeton’s Series 4050 brush was the first synthetic sable available for artists. This synthetic sable is now a popular, widely produced style of paintbrush, but the Series 4050 brush has never been equalled in quality.
This Grainer brush may be used to create multiple lines and to achieve a myriad of effects. The grainer portion of the brush has uneven lengths, so that it can create multiple fine lines with a single stroke. In addition to grass, hair, and fur or downy feathers, the grainer can be used to create striations on florals, birds and butterflies.
