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. Use a filbert for painting fine lines and broad strokes with softer edges.
Short Filbert — It has a shorter, flatter shape than the regular filbert, with rounded edges. Use it for fine lines and soft-edge broad strokes with greater 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.
