Kolinsky Sable chisel edge signwriting brush with metal ferrule and varnished hardwood handle, Ideal for fine Roman lettering. When broken in this brush can produce lettering from 1 1/4 inch to 3 inch high. Also suitable for block lettering and outlining letters and designs. Best results are with synthetic enamel paint ie. 1-Shot. Ideally break a new brush in by practising on paper with very lightly thinned enamel paint. By using very little paint and shaping the brush edge on the side of a paint cup it is possible to go from bold flowing strokes to leave with the finest serifs possible. Rinse and clean after using in white spirit and carefully grease with petroleum jelly to maintain shape and brush life. Look after your brushes and they will look after you.
