Kolinsky Sable Oil Brushes
The daVinci Kolinsky sable brushes
for oils exemplify this German manufacturer's skill and dedication to producing
the very finest hair brushes. Kolinsky sable oil brushes are mainly used
for spreading paint in an even and thin manner, allowing the artist subtle
shading of colors and blending of passages. Fine hair brushes are generally
used with more fluid paint. The daVinci Kolinsky sable oil brushes are very
soft, have good resilience and carry a lot of paint. With fine tapered points
and sharp edges, sables are the artist's choice for precise brush strokes,
detail work and delicate blending. The daVinci Kolinsky oil brushes offer
a tremendous range of sizes (up to size 30!) in all the traditional shapes.
Burgundy handles with nickel-plated brass ferrules.
The series 1610 Kolinsky oil rounds are great for precise detail in the
small sizes and fluid painting in the larger sizes. This round forms an
exceptional point and holds its shape well. Available up to a size 30!
The 1810 Kolinsky bright has a full belly shape which tapers to a sharp
chisel edge. This allows the brush to hold a lot of paint and still give
you tremendous control over the paint application - a wonderful painting
tool! Available up to a size 30!
The 1812 Kolinsky flat has a full belly shape and longer hair out than the
bright allowing the brush to hold a lot of paint and produce a more flowing
The hair out on the 1815 Kolinsky filbert is slightly longer than the 1810
bright. The filbert shape is very domed rather than pointed. Filberts allow
for soft edged painting and subtle blending. Available up to a size 30!
