A mix of tradition and modern technology, these Icon brushes represent the advancements of science combined with the classic needs of the traditional water colour 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 colour 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. After which 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.

The Jacksons Icon Sable Synthetic brush I bought has been exceptionally nice to use, I've always used Sable brushes, but having moved onto body colour for a brief spell, I was reluctant to use my Sable brushes and found the Icon brush really good. I intend buying more very shortly. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

I am a sable brush man myself. I have a nos.14 Diana Kolinsky sable etc. and a W&N nos.12 series 7 plus many more beside. However, I was completely surprised to find this brush worked well and carried colour well with a good point and could be described as the old artists used to call their brushes a "sable pencil". The brush handle is comfortable in the handle and is well balance which is an important point. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

These have to be the bargain of the year. Great brush, slightly stiffer than pure sable, holds loads of paint and a nice gradual release. Have 4, 6 & 12 plus 2 quills 4 & 10/0. Really very nice to use and a steal at this price. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
