The 7000 Series is Jack Richeson's current generation of advanced synthetic brushes. To design this 21st century brush, they enlisted the aid of a renowned water media painter, Steve Quiller. Years ago synthetic brushes were not much more than chopped up fishing line bundled up and stuck on the end of a handle. They were horrible for the user, especially for the young student who often received this budget-priced creation. In selecting the perfect synthetic round brush, it must have a firm needle point, a body that will carry a large load of color and last, but very important, a body that will allow the color to gently release and not flood out on the paper. The 7000 Series of brushes is a wonder and at just a fraction of the cost of natural hair brushes. This brush has a beautiful gold seamless ferrule and is mounted on a classic matte black handle. This is truly the watercolor brush of the future.
The medium-duty and lightweight bars are manufactured from high quality white pine. The lightweight bars are extremely useful in small paintings. These bars can save you money and make framing a little easier. BEST stretcher bars are made by Jack Richeson & Co., Inc. in Kimberly, Wisconsin.
• Sold individually
• Caution: The lightweight bars are not for use on large paintings.
When we introduced the market to the fabulous “9000” brushes, they were a whole new way of making brushes. Its historic fine snappy point and its ability to carry great volumes of color have kept it an industry leader. These brushes have seven different types of pointed synthetic fibers blended to create a marvelous artist tool. The brushes have a silver seamless ferrule and a beautiful black handle with gold and yellow trim. The ferrules on the 9010 flat are a round base up to 1" and the larger sizes are a folded flat base.
