Winsor & Newton Sceptre Gold II Brushes are the perfect mix of sable and synthetic giving the performance of a sable at the price of synthetic.
Artists generally recognize that pure sable brushes are the best, but costly, so consideration of price may compel many to use a synthetic brush instead. However, while today's synthetic brushes perform better than ever, pure sable still has the edge. This is why Winsor & Newton offers Sceptre Gold II, a brush that's made from a blend of pure sable and synthetic fibers, giving you a performance that is close to sable at a price that is close to synthetic.
The blend of hair in Sceptre Gold II also gives you added benefits. Sable hair has excellent spring while the high quality synthetic filaments ensure that the brushes are soft enough to work the color but also have a strong snap so they return back to their original shape with ease. The high proportion of sable in Sceptre Gold II gives the brushes considerably more ability to make larger washes in one stroke than normal synthetic brushes and the hairs are tapered to a fine point, giving the brush control for detailed work.
Sceptre Gold II Brushes are ideal for working with watercolor and fluid oil color but are also suitable for use with acrylic, water mixable oil and alkyd fast drying oil color.
Each Sceptre Gold II brush has a copper-colored handle and a seamless, gold-colored ferrule.
Series 101 Round - For fine detail, lines and washes. A traditional and popular head shape for all-purpose work in watercolor. May be used for broad strokes yet it will also form a sharp point. They possess excellent color holding capacity, sensitivity, spring and durability.
