Designed with the same care and craftsmanship as the Blick Academic Red Sable Round, this brush has amazing water carrying capacity. This natural Red Sable brush is superior to synthetic or goat hair, for covering large areas. It has a short handle.
Blick's Academic Red Sable series was designed to provide advanced students with a watercolor brush that is excellent and yet affordable, especially in larger sizes. The fine red sable hair is sorted and selected in England, and 15-20% of each lot is rejected for size or quality reasons. The result is a brush of much greater quality than other academic sables.
