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.
This filbert combines excellent spring, the ability to move large volumes of oil paint with smooth brush strokes for large area work and the ability to blend colors while holding a firm edge. A thick belly allows maximum color loading and delicate edges and points hold their shape even after heavy use.
