Black Velvet brushes are made of a unique blend of natural squirrel hair and black synthetic filament, creating the ideal working tools for the watercolorist, silk painter, and artists working with inks, dyes, acrylics or gouache. Squirrel hair holds large amounts of color and releases it with perfect control. By itself, squirrel hair is delicate. Blended with a synthetic to resist wear and maintain a wonderful snap and spring. This soft blend allows for multiple layer glazing without disturbing previous colors, yet it's firm enough to lift color with a gentle scrub. Black Velvet brushes feature polished black ferrules, carefully fitted to gloss black handles, each with a distinctive silver neck band.
