Info

A mix of tradition and modern technology, these Icon brushes represent the advancements of science combined with the classic needs of the traditional watercolor artist.

The uniqueness of the Micro-Synthetic fibre is twofold. Firstly, the fibres are treated to produce millions of tiny indentations. This increases the surface area of the hairs allowing a much greater color holding capacity for the brush. The hairs are then treated with a special process that frees the micro-synthetic fibres of any static electricity which makes brush fibres stick together. Following this treatment the hairs can smoothly and precisely react to any kind of stroke, either delicate or abrupt. By then mixing natural sable hairs we create a brush that behaves like a pure sable but at a fraction of the price.

Review

I love Jackson's, and have bought two of their house brand brushes, but unfortunately I have been disappointed both times. I wasn't impressed with the Raven quill I got, but at least it's usable. But this 3/8" flat Icon is simply the worst watercolor brush I've ever purchased. You cannot lay down an even flat wash with it, because it is so stiff and dense, it pushes the paint to the edges. It leaves such bad brush strokes, that even excellent cotton paper cannot compensate for it. I have a flat Cotman brush (fully synthetic) that far outperforms this brush. Speaking of which, the percentage of real sable must be tiny in this brush; there's no trace of sable's feeling or performance. I would not buy another brush from this line, and sadly, I think I'll just stay away from the Jackson's brushes in the future. But that doesn't mean I won't order from them again!

I like these brushes and have a few now. Controlling water use is much easier with them. They've helped me improve my watercolours a great deal. I feel quite confident with the Icon in my hand. The flat brush is amazing for skies, land scape and loads more detail giving me a lot of control over my paints.
