Holds more water than any other synthetic. Large belly tapers to a fine point. The blending and placement of 5 different diameters of fine synthetic filaments make this brush perform like natural hair.
The long-lasting, high quality synthetic fiber has an energetic spring. Brushes are made by hand, so there may be variation with the handles.
Vario Tip Brushes
These brushes feature a blend of Spin and Nova filaments in different lengths for parallel line and multi-textured effects. They can be used with all media and feature nickel-plated, seamless brass ferrules that are resistant to rust.

Excellent travel brushes, great value
from Western Massachusetts
Comments about Da Vinci Cosmotop Spin Travel Series 1573:
I bought the size 1, 3, 5 and 12 in the Cosmotop line of DaVinci travel brushes to fill the gaps in my previously purchased Maestro Kolinski sable travel brushes. Overall, I'm very pleased with the brushes. They fit nicely with the Maestros, filling the size gaps almost perfectly. The one disappointment is the #12 - the most expensive of the Cosmotop brushes I bought. It's virtually the same size as the #10 Maestro. In combination with the Maestros, I expect these brushes will give me a versatile and compact set of travel brushes with performance that will rival my studio brushes. For now, I'll just avoid using the #12 until I decide what, if anything to do about it. Since I usually work small when traveling it won't be much of a compromise.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Evaluating against a hake brush. Very silky and even flow, but doesn't hold as much water as hake

Flat Wash 40
from Detroit, MI
I use the flat wash brush to apply large, even layers of acrylic glaze to paintings and use them to apply the acrylic isolation coat prior to varnishing. They lay the medium and paint on very smoothly without uneven areas or visible brush strokes. These are top notch brushes!

I am new to watercolors, but have other brushes for crafting about this size. I was surprised at how well it does its job.

I like this brush because of its pointy tip. It helps to be more precise in small spaces.

By Elwin Joseph
from St.Croix, U.S.Virgin Islands
For big washes and because of the fine point that it snap back to, I also use it for fine lines and detailsI have seen Artist on YouTube used this brush and always wanted them but didnt know where to fine them until one day i was searching in one of your catalog that was sent to me and to my surprise there they were. I was in Brush heaven at the moment. I plan to get a few more in the future being they are a bit pricey.The different uses that come with this brush, you can use them for big washes and also because they snap back to a fine point and for a Synthetic brushes it's great.Everything is great about this brush.

I am very happy with this brush. It retains very good amount of water, is solid and has a wonderful tip. I will definitely buy more of this model in other sizes.
