Da Vinci Kolinsky Red Oil Sable Brushes combine great resilience and softness to create a brush that is perfect for spreading color thinly and evenly to achieve fine shades of color and structure.
The Series 1815 Filberts combine the advantages of flat and round brushes in working with oils. Each brush has a long, polished handle.
In the sun-filled rooms of the Da Vinci factory, production masters, interns, and apprentices sit at marble working tables. Visitors often marvel at the calm atmosphere not usually found in a factory. They often compare it to a laboratory or studio, as the silence of concentration prevails, interrupted only by occasional consultation and conversation.
Brush hairs are glued into the ferrule by a dosing machine. Then the ferrule is filled with a modern component-glue. After the drying and curing process, all the hairs are firmly positioned. Da Vinci uses nickel- and gold-plated brass ferrules, which are rust resistant.
Fat Filbert — A welcome addition to the Da Vinci Kolinsky Sable brush line, the Fat Filbert offers four times the thickness of Kolinsky Sable and a slightly shorter length than a standard Filbert brush.
The Series 1823 Fat Filbert is excellent for layering and glazing, and it allows for the greatest control and detail, making it ideal for details, miniatures, and precision painting. An extra thick belly provides a solid foundation for shape retention.
Note — Brush sizes are not standardized. The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size varies considerably by manufacturer. Since fine art brushes are hand crafted, expect some variation even among brushes from a given manufacturer.
