Our Autograph Black Sable's the Brush for Every Oil Technique. The DANIEL SMITH Autograph Series 46 Black Sable Oil Brush is a wonderful all-purpose tool for oil painters. Softer than Chungking hog bristle but stiffer than Kolinsky Red Sable, Russian Black Sable combines the advantages of controlled, bristle-like strokes with a smooth application that won't mark paint layers. This brush is great for delicate blending and smoothing out ridges left by bristle brushes - an invaluable asset for portrait and realist painters. The larger size has great color-carrying capacity.
Black Sable hair is so smooth that only certain master brushmakers can hold onto it without it slipping through their fingers. A seamless, nickel-plated brass ferrule and hand-tapered edges make this brush durable and luxurious.
The round tapers to a sharp point and has excellent spring. A thick belly allows maximum color loading and a delicate point holds its shape even after heavy use.
