Escoda Barroco Toray Gold is perhaps the finest quality soft to medium synthetic fiber available for artists.
Slightly stiffer than the Toray white, it keeps an excellent point and edge for a soft, yet controlled application. For increased longevity, Escoda cures each brush increasing the spring and resilience of the hair.
The short, green lacquered wood handle is triple crimped to the nickel-plated brass ferrule. The nylon filaments vary in diameter to allow for a more natural point and appearance.
Cat's Tongue — The "Cat's Tongue" is a pointed filbert with more edges than the typical, almond shaped filbert. Popular in Europe, it allows you to create lines and points with different weights.
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.
Long and Short Handles — Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water media.
