For more than half a century, da Vinci products have done justice to a name synonymous with superior art. A true plein air brush, this top quality Filbert (7485), with its distinctively shaped oval head, is well suited for outdoor painting. Versatile, it is perfect for blending, as well as figurative work. Skillfully crafted, quality synthetic bristles can withstand the demands of thick rich mediums, like oils or more heavy bodied acrylics. They are firmly secured in a rust resistant, seam free brass ferrule that has been nickel plated for further durability. In addition, the brush’s shorter handle allows convenient portability and easy packing into any case or Porchade box.
