Welcome to dickblick
Renaissance Red Sable Brushes make no compromise, offering a natural spring and generous color-holding capacity.
The finest-quality pure red sable from selected Marten tails is carefully dressed, hand-cupped, tied, and epoxy-set into polished seamless ferrules by experienced brushmakers, then fitted to carefully balanced gloss black hardwood handles with gold tips.
These brushes hold a fine point and resist splitting. They are the professional's choice in a wide variety of sizes and shapes for projects with oil paints.

Flat is faulty
from Fort Smith, arkansas
Comments about Silver Brush Renaissance Red Sable Short Handle Brushes:
The flat's top was uneven, delivered a "Blob" rather than a clean line when used to dab the top of the brush on paper. No real control to make "windows"( i.e. it did not make good sharp edges). Brush was not "tight" when put in water. This was the 1/4 brush. Won't go with this brand ever again!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use with acrylics
from North carolina
I use red sable for dry brush and blending with acrylics. I loved the discontinued Blick masterstroke finest red sable. This brush, the silver renaissance pure reds sable, is the closest I can find. I have tried quite a few.
I like these brushes for scrubbing in. I think I prefer synthetic over-all, but of the bristle I have tried, these seem to retain their shape the best and have a decent bounce.
I love these brushes!
from Reno, NV
I used to paint only with bristle brushes and I wanted to achieve a softer finished look. I just introduced this line of brushes to my plein air oil painting and they are a pleasure to work with. They lay down paint beautifully over my transparent underpainting and don't disturb the lower paint and create the look I was desiring. I'll be getting every size available!!!
from Lenoir City, TN
The red sable brushes allow for a very delicate stroke. You can be confident that every stoke of oil paint lays down exactly as you want it.
from Paris, Tn
Nice smooth brush, holds paint really well with nice flexible bristles.
from Reno NV
I've used Silver pure red sable brushes for several years. These are by far one of the best brushes for alkyd oils I've ever used. Alkyd oils are tough on any brush but with proper mixing with medium these are a true pleasure to work with; bristles won't flag even after numerous hours of use on course and medium weave canvas. They are worth every penny of the price.
Good for the price

from Louisville, KY
I bought the 1/2" and 1/4" flat brushes, and though they are quality I don't know that I would recommend them over a nice synthetic of the same size. I also purchased a #10 Cat's Tongue, and it is pretty sweet.

Great brushes for oil painting detail work
from Ottawa, Canada
Another great short-handled detail brush not only for watermedia as stated, but excellent for detailed oil painting.I paint 5x7 cards with birds on them. The Cat's Tongue brush is especially valuable for getting fine lines and feathers and the eyes done... and supperb price also- can't go wrong here...
