Welcome to dickblick
Da Vinci Kolinsky Red Sable Oil 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.
Each brush has a long, maroon, 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.
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.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.

Best brush for blending
Comments about Da Vinci Brushes Da Vinci Kolinsky Red Sable Oil Brushes:
I have been doing some research online and read dozens of reviews, trying to find a very good brush for blending oil paints. I bought a Da Vinci fat filbert in size 12 and have been using in for over a year now for every single painting. The bristles are very soft, but dense, allowing blending without leaving marks on the canvas. It's such a wonderful brush, it is however small. I just placed an order for a size 16, so I'm hoping it will be bigger for those larger areas on the canvas.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Da Vinci Kolinsky Red Oil Sable Round Series 1610:
I am still relatively new to painting. I started to paint with oil a couple of years ago. Finally, I decided to try a brush which is although pricier than many cheaper brushes but much better quality - and I absolutely love it! It works the paint amazingly well. Great for detail and fine work. I will be getting more Da Vinci brushes for sure. Very happy with my purchase.

These are great brushes. Just right for portrait painting. Well worth the price. The brushes keep their shapes after each use, and they are used A LOT!

Comments about Da Vinci Kolinsky Red Oil Sable Flat Series 1812:
The Red Sable is my favorite brush whatever its configuration. I use hog bristle sometimes, but my heart isn't really in it.

Great brush for blending
I think it's a great brush, but don't have enough experiences with other brushes to know if it's the best in its category. I was using it for blending and love it. It holds its shape and edge well. I use Da Vinci brushes for watercolors as well and love them. Overall I think it was money well spent.

I have bought this product often.
I use this product with both acrylics and oils. They hold well. I particularly the feel of the brush in my hand as I apply paint.
