Black Velvet Striper 3/8 " by Silver Brush
Black Squirrel & Synthetic
Short Handles - for Watercolor
Our unique blend of natural squirrel hair and black synthetic filament creates the ideal working tool, the Black Velvet Striper 3/8 , for the watercolorist, silk painter, and artists working with inks, dyes, acrylics or gouache.
Squirrel hair holds large amounts of color and releases it with perfect control. By itself, squirrel is delicate. So we blended it with a synthetic to resist wear and maintain a wonderful snap and spring. This soft blend allows multiple layer glazing without disturbing previous colors, yet it’s firm enough to lift color with a gentle scrub.
