Escoda handcrafts premium-quality bristle to create a superior quality brush that stands up beautifully to heavy paint.
Escoda's patented curing process accentuates the memory of the bristles. The Clasico Chungking White Bristle retains its original shape and handles wonderfully.
The long, natural varnished handle offers plenty of control. It's attached to the nickel ferrule using Escoda's exclusive triple crimping process.
Extra Long Handle
Select large sizes are available with extra long handles. These premium bristle brushes are especially prized by painters who work in oil and acrylic on very large canvases. The matt-varnished handle measures almost 60 cm, nearly two feet long, and offers plenty of control. The price of these unusual, extra long handle brushes reflects the special handling and packaging they require at every stage in their manufacture and distribution.

Bright and Flat — A Bright is a short flat brush that absorbs less color and has a stiffer stroke. A Flat is longer than a Bright and is consequently more flexible at the tip.
Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.

Comments about Escoda Clasico Chungking White Bristle:
I bought this brush searching for an alternative to my favorite, the Silverbrush Grand Prix extra long filbert. I bought several sizes, up to a #8. Opening the package, I was surprised for two reasons. First, the brushes are gorgeous. The handles are a lacquered white wood. Wow. So nice. However, they are tiny. The #8 is the same size as a Silverbrush #2. I didn't pay attention to the sizing. My fault. What at first seemed like a good deal suddenly changed into an expensive purchase. But I figured that I would use them and see what happens. They performed so so. The bristles are long, and oil paint loads into it nicely. However, after washing then once, the bristles begin to flag and they become less precise. One loaded up with paint, there is usually one or two errant bristles, which can create havoc. They made nice brushes to soften edges though. They also look nice among my supplies.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

These brushes are excellent
These bristle brushes have great handling quality and retain their shape for long periods of time. I especially like the fan brush for blending and softening rough edges.

they endure my acrylic scrubbing and dabbing
from Land of Enchantment
I have a couple sizes of these Escoda brights that I've used most indelicately for years and they are still in great shape. I have never found another brush to be this durable. Even after rough treatment, just clean them with Masters brush soap, re-shape the tips before drying (bristles down) and they're even good for pretty fine edge highlights when properly tip loaded. I love broken color, and these brushes make the paint sing! They are a joy to use with my palette knives. To those new to painting, I'll echo what others have said: do not soak natural bristle brushes in water and then expect them to be usable! They swell when wet, so those water tubs are their worst enemy. They will regain their shape after cleaning and drying. Also, it goes without saying that bristle is not the hair for fine detail. But couple these Escodas with a soft, precision brush like Dynasty Black Gold and all things are possible. Just writing about them makes me need to go paint. :)

I thought by buying a recommended and more expensive brush, I would get a "winner." Perhaps natural bristles simply don't work well in small sizes, but this small filbert brush was not perfectly cut when it arrived, and it frazzled out on it's very fist use. I guess I'll stick to the cheaper ones that often last as long or longer than the "better" ones.
Merchant response: It's true that a natural hog bristle brush is not the best choice for precision, for a number of reasons. Not least of these is the fact that the "flags"—the spit ends at the very tip of each hair—don't always point in the same direction, and can give the tip a frayed appearance. (Please note that no bristles are cut in the making of these brushes.)

Possibly the best bristle brush available
from Washington, DC
Comments about Escoda Clasico Chungking White Bristle Bright:
I paint in oil, and Escoda's bristle brushes are the best I've ever used. Strong construction, long well-matched bristles, and wood handles which offer a good grip for most hand sizes. I have been using the smallest sizes -- 00 in round and 1 in flat/bright, and am astounded how the bristles hold their shape. I'm used to having to use red sable at that size, so now I can paint down to eyelash detail without losing the stronger spring of bristles. Like all bristles they stain easily, especially with the phthalocyanines and natural crimsons. A thorough wash with oil soap gets most of it clean, and what remains doesn't impact my work.

I first learned about these brushes at a Gay Faulkenberry workshop. They are expensive yet superior. I have tried to develop a freer, more soft edge style - especially painting plain aire landscapes. These brushes have been a great help.Thanks - Arlene EarhartBaton Rouge, Louisiana
