Named after the exact location in Siberia where Escoda sources its Kolinsky-Tajmyr Sable, Reserva Series Brushes are crafted using only the tail hairs from the male Kolinsky — renowned for their springiness and capacity to retain liquids. Selection of fine materials, as well as Escoda's unique "curing" process, results in a watercolor brush that many artists consider to be perhaps the finest in the world.
Escoda's Reserva Kolinsky-Tajmyr Pointed Round (Series 1212) is unusually resilient, holds sharp points and crisp edges, and has terrific color holding capacity. Tufts are beautifully shaped of fine and evenly sized hairs, tightly packed at the ferrule edge.
Escoda's curing process results in a snappy core that gives the brush extra resilience. The short burgundy lacquered wood handle carries a triple crimped nickel-plated golden brass ferrule.
Kolinsky Sable Set — Six-piece Series 1212 set, ideal for the watercolor painter, includes round brushes in sizes 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, with a gold-plated ferrule, and the finest Kolinsky sable hair available.
Series 1214 — Pop this clever little Escoda travel brush into a pocket or plein air box. It's ready for the road at a moment's notice! Hidden within its golden chamber resides a regular length, pure Escoda Kolinsky-Tajmyr Kolinsky Sable Pointed Round brush.
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.
