The Cotman range of synthetic brushes is among the most advanced to be produced anywhere in the world. The secret to the Cotman brush lies in the fibers. By blending fibers of differing thicknesses, the four most important qualities sought after by the artist are achieved: spring, color, holding capacity, and point. The thicker fibers contribute strength and spring while the thinner fibers improve color holding capacity. Together they retain a perfect point, time after time. Designed specifically for use with watercolors and water-based media, these brushes have great color carrying capacity and hold a very sharp point. Features include seamless nickel plated ferrules and metallic blue polished handles.
