Escoda Primera Teijin is a maroon-colored synthetic with thicker and stiffer fibers for work with heavier bodied paints. Primera Teijin is especially recommended for heavy body acrylics and water mixable oils, because the synthetic fibers will not absorb water and soften with use. The Teijin fiber holds its shape extremely well with fantastic spring. Escoda specially cures each brush for increased resiliency and versatility, making it a pleasure to use. Although not as firm as most synthetic bristle, Teijin fibers are much stiffer than Escoda Tadami or synthetic sable.
The long black lacquered handle offers plenty of control on canvas and is secured to the nickel ferrule with Escoda's exclusive triple crimping process.
Escoda is unusual for offering most sizes of the Primera Teijin line in both a long- and short-handle format. The long-handle style is for easel style painting, while the short handle style is best for horizontal work, such as on a tabletop. Many artists use a combination of both long- and short-handle brushes, especially for acrylic media.
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.
