Escoda's Series 7040 Cap de Llauna brush is a full-bodied, filbert bristle brush for murals, decorative work, and faux finishing. It tapers to a soft, rounded tip and provides excellent control, for a bristle brush. The short handle is ideal for a brush that will be transported to plein air locations.
In Catalan, the language of Catalunya, the northeast regions of Spain, Cap de Llauna translates as "head of tin." Escoda's Cap de Llauna natural bristle is for painters who are hard on their bristle brushes, painters who go through a lot of brushes. This makes it a good choice too for abrasive surfaces. For the budget-minded painter, this is a great brush!
The bristle is stiffer and a darker color than the select grade used in their other top-of-the-line brushes. It has long bristles that produce a flowing, soft edged stroke. Each brush includes a natural wooden handle with a matte finish, and the polished brass ferrule is triple crimped.
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.
