Goldenedge watercolor brushes are handmade with several sizes of golden toray filaments encased within a seamless brass plated nickel ferrule. They are less likely to shed or lose their handles after repeated use than many other artists' brushes on the market today. Professional quality and affordability go hand in hand with this line of brushes. Many characteristics of a traditional sable hair watercolor brush are preserved in this synthetic filament variant without the environmental drawbacks associated with animal based products. These brushes have an amazing capacity to hold liquid, lay down color in smooth, fluid strokes and have unsurpassed spring.
