Welcome to dickblick
Winsor & Newton's Sceptre Gold 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!
Each Sceptre Gold 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.

Excellent brush for inking
By Alex Sheikman
from San Jose, CA
I draw comics and after I pencil my pages, I like to ink them with india ink before I scan them. I use a variety of tools (dip pens, markers, repidographs) including brushes. Recently I have been having a hard time finding a brush that comes to a nice point when wet and does not split when loaded with ink. These brushes are perfect to get a nice outline or to ink something organic. I know that they are small and for larger objects require a few re-loads with the ink, but the quality of the line is worth it to me.

Wouldn't use another brush...
By Tattooed Head
from Edmond, OK
Compared to any other brush I've ever used, these are BY FAR the best. I paint a lot, and have found that with the kind of painting I do, nothing else gives me the kind of control that I have with these. They're perfect.
My favorite for watercolor so far
I used to not like painting with watercolor, until I started trying out better quality brushes. I got a set of these when I was a student in college and bought a few extras at the time. I still have them. They remain my favorite choice for watercolor painting so far. The size 5 round is particularly my favorite for most of my illustration painting. I have two of them, one from series 1 and series 2. The #303 script liner holds a nice point for detailing/outlining. One semi regret: I wish I would have found out about this store sooner. The prices here look like a steal.
