I love the feel of each brush as it swoops through paint, and the balance of the brush in my hand. The flat shape allows for broad washes, or turn it to the side anto get delicate lines.
A wash brush is useful for laying in large areas of water or color, for wetting the surface, and for absorbing excess media.
The smaller sizes are what I use for my generel detailed painting, and the 25mm is perfect for gesso and collage work with matte medium.
Golden Taklon brushes contain a reddish-gold filament resembling Red Sable.
They are dyed and baked to make them softer and more absorbent. The filaments are exceptionally easy to clean.
The brushes have a lovely spring to them and can hold lots of paint.
They are suitable for watercolour and acrylics.
The clear acrylic handles are wonderful because they don’t split if left in water too long. Not that I recommend leaving your brushes in water for too long! But accidents happen, and many times I have lost a brush overnight to a water soaked, splitting handle.
These brushes also have an angled end that is wonderful for scratching into your painted surfaces, and handy for splitting watercolour paper off a block.
