The particular attributes of Russian Blue Squirrel tail hair, including its water-holding and paint-holding capacity, makes it especially ideal for water media.
Da Vinci's high-quality Russian Blue Squirrel brushes are significantly longer and larger than other brands. They are ideal for mop and wash techniques, for priming, and for area work.
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 handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from a given manufacturer.
