Welcome to dickblick
Winsor & Newton's Sceptre Gold II brushes combine sable hair with a special blend of synthetic fibers to produce a brush that approaches the performance of pure sable, yet at a moderate price! Sceptre Gold II brushes are available in different styles (long and short handle) to accommodate both oil and watercolor painters.
Each Sceptre Gold II brush has a copper-colored handle and a seamless, gold-colored ferrule.
Designer Round, Series 202
Available only in select sizes, the Series 202 Designer Round is a narrow belly version of the Series 101 Round. It's a traditional format for a watercolor detail brush, but it can be used for detail work in any media.
Pointed Round, Series 101
The Series 101 Round is the original Round in the Sceptre Gold line, perfect for high detail work. It's the watercolorists version of the Sceptre Gold Round, with a short lacquered handle.
Rigger, Series 303
A "Rigger" is the name originally given to brushes that were used for painting the rigging on ships in seascape paintings. Series 303 is a short handle pointed round brush with long springy fiber.

Very Nice Synthetic Brushes
from Stuart, FL
fI have several of these brushes in various sizes. They are good at holding paint, hold a good point, have a nice snap to them. I have useda 14 for a year or so and decides to get a series of them.
from Leawood, Ks
I ordered several of these in different sizes and am not impressed with any except the 2 Round. None of the others keep a point at all so are frustration to work with. Also they do not hold water as well as other brands I have tried which are all synthetic. Something not right with these brushes and I cannot recommend.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I would buy some more products
from Thoreau, NM
You can't find good products in NM.
Always good quality!
from Belmont, MA
These remain my go to fine detail brush for oil painting. Take up oil and color really well and maintain a pout for a long time.
Happy with product.
Performs above it's price-class. Combination of natural and synthetic bristles holds more liquid than pure synthetic without the price of all natural.
from Fountain Inn, SC
Painting with watercolor, have used this brand of brush for years and always have good results.
from Huntsville, AL
Have relied on this brush years ago when I was in to doing watercolors... have not gotten back into it yet because of the holidays and doctor appointments... Am looking forward to using them again very soon!

Sceptre Gold Brushes
from Cape Coral, FL
This brush was just what I've been looking for. Doing details with this brush is great. Holds a lot of paint, and holds it's stiffness. Although I haven't used it much yet, I have completed detail in one painting with oills and it has retained its shape as if it was brand new. Would definitely recommend this series and plan to purchase more brushes in the line.
