Escoda Versatil Brushes

The Escoda Versatil synthetic Kolinsky brush is the modern-day alternative to natural Kolinsky.

Utilizing a carefully selected custom blend of uniquely patterned synthetic fibers, these short-handled or long-handled brushes achieve everything artists expect from the finest natural hair brush.

Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, the Versatil provides great water retention, a firm spring, and a sharp, fine point, plus enhanced durability and a more consistent shape over the life of the brush.

Rigger, Series 1549 — The Rigger is a long, full-bellied, pointed round brush shape with large color capacity that was originally designed for painting the rigging of ships.

Travel Round — These extremely portable brushes are the same as their Escoda Versatil counterparts, but are fitted with brass caps that protect their delicate filaments. When removed, the cap fits on the end, transforming the brush into a full watercolor size.

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.

Long and Short Handles — Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water media.
