Aquafine Synthetic Brushes utilise hand-mixed blends of thick and thin filaments, tapered to a point, as well as different lengths to become a remarkable imitation of natural sable hair. This special construction gives them excellent point and stroke, superb shape retention and long life. Aquafine Sable & Goat Brushes use sable which is essential to achieve the highest standards in watercolour or gouache and the Aquafine range features a series of sable round brushes. For colour holding capacity and spring there is no better natural hair or synthetic fibre. This special construction allows Daler-Rowney synthetic brushes to outperform all other synthetic brushes in point and stroke and guarantees that the brushes will not split. They have excellent shape retention and longer life than natural sable hair. This range is complemented by a small selection of goat blend pointed washes, featuring a traditional style wire-bound ferrule and offering outstanding colour holding and flow control.
