#6089 White Bristle Fan – Hog Fibre
#5420 Pastel Blender – Short Handle: Soft short thick fitch hair.
Fine-tipped oil painting brush made from Siberian fitch hair. Its fine ‘cat’s tongue’ shape has made it an oil painter’s favourite for fine work and retouching in portraiture.
Black handle with gold ferrule; golden red hair in colour. These brushes are the ultimate for fine work in oils and where precision in fine detail is essential.
Note: Round brushes: The 882 and 8802 series, together with the fuller brush shape series 1862, are extensively used for oil-based lettering and calligraphy work.
This brush offers fine fibres between hog bristles and synthetic fibres. It has always been associated with fine oil painting, especially where soft subtle brushstrokes and blending are required.
Note: Though more expensive, all Raphael brushes will last double the life of cheaper brushes and give a much better result with all mediums.
