Made from Russian Black Sable hair, these unique brushes offer the perfect balance between stiff and soft hair.
With slightly more body and snap than Red Sable, but softer than Hog Bristle, Eclipse brushes are ideal for subtle blending and fine glazing, as they show minimal brush strokes. They're also highly resilient and responsive, making them perfect for lightly thinned and "let down" oil color.
A double-bodied handle with a sculpted, balanced grip both at the tail and below the ferrule make them useful for both easel painting and "close in" work.
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.
