Welcome to dickblick
The Skywash is famous for its versatility. A full tuft of good-quality, pure white hog bristle fills the flat, nickel-plated steel ferrule.
This brush can be used with watercolors for large washes and for wetting paper. With oils or acrylics, the Series 9031 brush is a useful tool for laying in large areas of color, for priming, or for varnishing. Its short, flat handle gives excellent control.

Very useful brush

Comments about Blick Masterstroke Pure White Hog Bristle Skywash Series 9031:
I painted a sky on a large canvas with this brush. The bristles held together well, and it held a lot of paint. It made some nice blending strokes and covered very well. The clean up was no problem. I'll use this again on my next painting. It also worked making blades of grass in a large area by pushing the brush upward. Very handy brush.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I only just started trying to learn Bob Ross's wet-into-wet techniques. I have been happy with the performance of this 2" brush.
Wonderful varnish brush for Acrylics and water soluble Oils

Great Varnish brush
from Denver, CO
I didn't think I needed a varnish brush, but got tired of picking out the loose hair off my paintings. This brush leaves the canvas clean. Great investment.

I've been using this brush both for gessoing and laying down large swatches of color. Both times the brush shedded onto the canvas. Basically unusable.
Merchant response: We are sorry that this brush did not fully meet your expectations. Some brushes do tend to drop bristles initially. Make sure the brush is washed prior to use to remove any bristles that may be loose. To help minimize additional loss, avoid soaking in water or mediums, and always rinse and properly dry brushes immediately.
