Ferrule Brush


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, aluminium, 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

Squirrel hair is taken from the tail of squirrels and it is the finest hair to be used in brush making. Its ability to maintain painting colour is extraordinary. Furthermore it has very fine tips which is important for porcelain painting. It allows a perfectly smooth coat of paint onto a highly glazed surface.

Sable hair is taken from the tail of sables. Its flexibility is brilliant and the top perfectly performs on porcelain. Brushes with sable hair are qualified to be used for details, delicate lines and watercolour painting.

Bristles

Sometimes referred to as hairs or filaments, bristles make up the head of the brush called the brush head. This is the part of the brush that holds the paint. They be made from natural hair, synthetic fibres, or combination of both. Natural bristles are made from some sort of animal hair, such as hog or badger. Synthetic bristles are often made from nylon, polyester, or a combination of both. (For more information on the types of fibres bristles are made from see “Brush Bristle (Hair) Types”.)
