Robert Simmons Sapphire Brushes for Watercolors

If you value the good pointing, color handling, spring, and smooth application of natural sable with the durability and value of synthetic brushes, the Sapphire line is for you.

Handmade of the finest red Kolinsky hair and synthetic filaments, Sapphire brushes can be used with all media. They feature kiln-dried beechwood handles and precision engineered 22K gold-plated ferrules.

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. Sapphire is available in a variety of classic brush shapes with both long and short handles.

Sapphire Pack W — This set, designed for watercolor painting, contains three short handle brushes: Shader, Size 4; Filbert, Size 4; and Round, Size 2.

Sapphire Pack X — This set, designed for tole and decorative painting, contains four short handle brushes: Liner, Size 10/0; Angle Shader, Size 1/4", Shader, Size 6; and Round, Size 4.

Sapphire Pack Y — This set, designed for watercolor painting, contains four short handle brushes: Script Liner, Size 3; Shader, Size 12; Round, Size 2; and Round, Size 6.

Shader — With short hair, and slightly stiffer than a Flat, the Shader is a short handle version of the Bright. Short handles provide more control for painting on flat surfaces, as with watercolor and water media.
