Don't give this synthetic the "brush off" — it's the closest thing to a natural hair brush we've found.
Raphaël's Kaerell is a long-wearing brush with excellent water-carrying capacity and surprising strength, at an economical price. Supremely soft with a fine tip, the pointed round shape is excellent for watercolor and watermedia techniques in acrylics.
Series 8394, Short Handle Round — This brush is a short handle version of the Series 869 Round, and is perfect for fine detail 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.
