4600 Neef Taklon Squirrel Mix

By Neef

A flat wash brush with pointed tip making it ideal for manoeuvring through shapes when applying a wash. Artists have considered this brush as an 'all-rounder', as the pointed tip allows for a wide range of mark making, while the thickness of the body allows the brush to hold a substantial amount of water. 


A new development has been the combination of squirrel and taklon. TAKLON For point and spring, SQUIRREL for colour carrying capacity. This mix gives a superb brush for watercolour in particular at a much lower price than sable. Traditionally watercolourists have used brushes made from squirrel, however the hair is expensive. 20% of the SQUIRREL / TAKLON brush hair is made from blue Squirrel. This hair is a lot lighter than the taklon so the actual hair volume for the squirrel component seems much greater. Squirrel retains lots of water and when combined with taklon it makes a perfectly affordable watercolour brush.
