Brushes

The ferrule of a brush is the metal band that connects the bristles to the handle and the crimp is the part of the ferrule that secures it to the handle. Ferrules can be made from tin, aluminum, brass or copper alloys that are nickel or chrome plated. Better quality brushes have a brass or copper alloy ferrule. These types have the best adhesion to the handle and a double or triple crimp. This is important because if the ferrule does not fit properly, the bristles will fall out or the ferrule could come off the handle.
These Quill brushes feature silky smooth squirrel hair that holds a huge reservoir of color and acts in concert with your hand movements to lay down sweeping wash strokes and juicy short strokes with beautiful precision. Brilliant, powerful strokes that you can control.
