2013 Cindy Lane Mahogany Kazan NEEF Wash

By Neef

Neef proudly introduces its own new development KAZAN synthetic. Not only do they have the softness and suppleness of a natural squirrel but we feel they completely out preform them.

More importantly, from our own lab test, a KAZAN brush may actually outperform in water holding capacity by 17% greater than the natural hair version. Also, don’t forget what 100% synthetic gives you, the stress-free painting of no loose hairs, durability, easy brush care, and the stable quality.

“Since discovering the Primatek range of watercolours by DANIEL SMITH, the exciting possibilities for my work are endless. Now I can complete entire paintings using a single tube of colour, thanks to the wonderfully dramatic granulation properties of the paint. Whilst doing a wash, the pigment particles dance, swirl, separate and settle, creating the most wonderful tones and 3D textures. It is the most hypnotic, exciting and addictive painting process I know. To paint with the “Jewels from the Earth” in the Primatek range is a very special feeling indeed”.
