Artist Chungking Bristle
The strongest white hog bristle
comes from the city of Chungking in China. The hog bristle that daVinci
uses in their finest artist bristle is double-boiled to reduce stiffness
and give the brushes extra spring and flexibility. The interlock construction
of the brush head helps the brush keep its shape even after long and vigorous
use. The heads are shaped by hand to retain the natural flag on the bristle.
The natural flags hold more color and provide greater control in color release.
The daVinci Chungking bristle brushes have a striking red stained handle
with a black tip and the ferrule is nickel-plated brass.
