The Prado Tame synthetic is Escoda’s finest synthetic for watercolor, with the hairs dyed to resemble sable.
The painting edge, snap, and color carrying capacity of this brush are outstanding. The short fiber length gives great control to painters who like to use angle brushes. Unlike other brush makers, Escoda specially cures each handcrafted brush for excellent snap and resiliency.
The brush has a burgundy lacquered wood handle with a nickel-plated brass ferrule.
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.
