Raphaël's Kaërell is the closest thing to a natural hair brush we've found at an economical price. Supremely soft with a fine tip, it is excellent for watercolor, acrylic, and oil painting.
It is a long wearing brush with excellent water-carrying capacity and surprising strength. Kaërell offers an expressive feel to the artist. It is durable, easy to clean, and an extremely versatile brush for many techniques and media. Use the long handled brushes for easel style painting, and the short handled brushes for tabletop painting with watercolor or watermedia.
Series 8796, Short Handle Flat — This brush is a short handle version of the Series 879 Flat, and is perfect for line work and washes in watercolors, or for painters in acrylics and oils who prefer a short handle 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.
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.
