Welcome to dickblick
These excellent quality short handle brushes for the watercolor painter have the best point and spring of all Princeton synthetics.
The special blend of varying diameters of synthetic sable hair issues terrific spring. It looks just like genuine sable, and performs at a higher level than other synthetics.
The Princeton wash brush also features a rich, distinctive gold ferrule and marbleized red hardwood handle.
A Bright Shader has shorter fiber than a Flat Shader. Use a Bright Shader to create delicate lines as well as for thicker applications of paint.
A Flat Shader has shorter fiber than a Bright Shader. The flat styling and longer hair make painting irregular details and shading easy. This brush also expands the possibilities in sign painting.

Comments about Princeton Best Synthetic Sable Series 4050:
This is a beautiful brush for watercolor. Holds a lot of water and pigment and has a nice point for detail. Great for painting both large areas and small details.
Solid Gouache Brush
from Old Orchard Beach, ME
I'm an illustrator and I do most of my painting in gouache on various papers. It's fine, finicky work - lots of line work - so I need something that maintains a crisp point, and larger brushes that cover well. These fit the bill nicely with a mix of firmness and delicacy. I also find that they hold up pretty well for the cost. No no.1 or 2 round is going to be the last 1 or 2 you buy, but these perform, in my experience, above average in performance and longevity for a solid price point.
excellent watercolor brush!

Angled tip is great for watercolor washes and for laying down large swatches of color.

Comments about Princeton Series 4050 Synthetic Sable Shader:
Really great brush line. I have purchased the liners, shaders (both styles), wash, and stroke brushes in. various sizes. I bought them on sale during Blick's recent Princeton brush sale and I absolutely love these brushes. There haven't been any loose hairs on any of my brushes, even with my 2" wash brush. Amazing quality and performance.
Great synthetic brushes.

These brushes are great and happy they handle so well and are animal friendly! I will order again. Especially love the filberts!
We buy this product over and over
from Elgin, IA
We have used these paint brushes for years. They work work well with water based paint even though they are washed out 4 or 5 times a day to change paint colors. With the numberous washings they don't widen and fray out for a good length of time like other brushes we have tried periodically.
I enjoy the Princeton line of watercolor brushes!
