Info

A mix of tradition and modern technology, these Icon Quill 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.

Review

I love this brush! I bought the Jackson's Raven mop in the same size (#6) last year having only ever used sable and squirrel brushes previously, as I was looking for something much bigger but without the real hair price tag. I was really disappointed with the Raven's ability to hold water, hold colour, hold a point...everything really! But this brush does everything I'd been looking for and at an even lower price tag too. It has a really lovely shape to it - the #6 brush is a real monster in size, but holds a beautiful sharp point, making it extremely versatile. The bristles are smoother than real hair, but that's to be expected from synthetics and I personally didn't mind this as the brush holds far more water (and releases it more steadily) than I'd expect from synthetic bristles. In that regard, it matches my sable and squirrel brushes easily. I'd definitely be excited to try these brushes in the smaller sizes too - I feel they could even replace my real hair brushes eventually, and that's something I never thought I'd be saying!

I love it. I think I will be doing the majority of my painting with this. It loads up well with pigment for washes and still keeps a good point for fine work.
