Winsor & Newton Artist's (Oil) Hog Bristle Brushes

Artists' Oil Brush is our highest quality hog brush and provides a level of performance that is unrivalled. It is made from the finest materials with the highest level of craftsmanship, and achieves the degree of sensitivity demanded by discerning artists.

By using the finest Chunking hog bristles, the hair is extremely resilient and the brush retains its working edge and shape for far longer.  The bristles are also ‘flagged' (i.e. split at the ends) giving the brush the ability to carry more colour and then to apply it evenly to the surface.

The natural curve of the bristle is utilized to produce a consistent shape. Artists' Oil Brush has a contoured satin matte handle that provides balance when painting close up by the ferrule or back by the tail. The matte finish minimizes glare when plein air painting

Artists' Oil Brush gives an unrivalled performance and a lifetime of service. They are the choice of brush for oil colour professionals.

Winsor & Newton Eclipse Black Sable Brushes

The Eclipse brush range is made from Russian Black Sable hair which offers the perfect balance between stiff and soft hair brushes. With slightly more body and snap than red sable, but softer than hog bristle, Eclipse black sable (also known as "fitch"), is ideal for subtle blending and fine glazing as it shows very little brush strokes.  It is also highly resilient and responsive, making it perfect for lightly thinned or "let down" oil colour.

This brush offers a number of additional unique features. Firstly it has a double-bodied handle which provides exceptional balance and comfort. It is sculpted to offer a balanced grip at the tail as well as below the ferrule making it perfect for both easel painting and "close in" work.

In addition, the range of brush heads is expansive and includes some unique head shapes which have double thick hair. These include the Double Thick Filbert, Double Thick Flat/Bright and Double Thick Fan which provide extra durability and colour carrying capacity. These shapes also offer a broad range of finely controlled working properties. (Available by Special Order Only - Ask in store for details)

Eclipse Black Sable brushes are truly unique and are an ideal complement to the painting styles and needs of oil colour painters.
