Winsor & Newton's synthetic mongoose fiber offers better durability than mongoose. This unique synthetic fiber is so much like mongoose, it even has the tapered point and surface texture of the natural hair. It is stiffer than sable, but softer than hog bristle, perfect for acrylic and oil painting.
Each brush is elegantly crafted with a gold-tone ferrule and a dark brown stained and lacquered handle. A bright shape brush has shorter bristles than the flat, for better control.
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.
