Welcome to dickblick
Looking for something a little out of the ordinary? The Modernista Tadami brush from Escoda is one of the finest crafted brushes we've seen. The synthetic filament is designed to simulate the feel of mongoose hair, a favorite of painters for centuries.
The brush head is stiffer than most synthetics, but it holds a remarkable point and isn't as stiff as a bristle brush. It's perfect for oil and acrylic in most any consistency.
Escoda's curing process creates a brush head that consistently snaps back to its original shape. The gray-black lacquered wood handle is triple crimped to the nickel-plated brass ferrule.
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.

Comments about Escoda Modernista Tadami Synthetic Mongoose Round Long Handle Series 4075:
These brushes perform as well as could be possibly expected, they hold paint extremely well and they hold a point just as well. I plan on ordering more in the future.
Great brush for fine details
By NM Hiker

This brush is great for oil painting and provides nice control for fine details..
Brush of choice
One of my favorite brand of brushes. Affordable. They respond well and hold their shape. After trying one I found it to have the precise control that I was looking for and bought a whole range of these so that now this brand along with Blicks's Master Stroke Synthetic series are almost the only brushes I use.

Great quality, when used with medium it is smooth, leaving no brush stroke showing. I am using as a drawing tool and it creates a sharp line that is maintained, edges nice and sharp!
Excellent for Oils
from Fort Collins, CO
Crisp edges and springier than most.
from Highland Park, IL
I am a plein air artist. In the field I need control, as the elements toy with me. These brushes give me that. I especially like the round brushes. I have spent what seems like a lot of money for size 18 and 22 brushes, but they wear well, keep a lovely point, and have a great resiliency.

Use for my bold, fast brush strokes.Sturdy work horse of a bruch.Wish the type brush (filbert, etc.) was printed on the brush.
