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 when combined with taklon it makes a perfectly affordable watercolour brush.
Please note: Brushes are sold separately.
