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.

They were horrible for the user, especially for the young student who often received this budget-priced creation. Today’s watercolor painter finds “The Flats” even more important than the rounds. When wet, they come to a magnificent razor’s edge, allowing the thinnest line, a broad wash or anything in between. The ferrules on the 7010 flats have a round base up to the 1" size and the larger sizes have a folded flat base.
Jack Richeson Butcher Porcelain Palette Trays
Jack Richeson Butcher Porcelain Palette Trays are made from Chinese porcelain and have a convex center so water will run to the edge, making them the perfect palettes for dry brush techniques in watercolor or gouache. Modeled after the original American butcher trays, the smooth surface cleans easily and can last a lifetime. They may occasionally come with chips on the rim, but this is normal and will not affect the working surface for the artist.

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.
This palette is everything a good water color paltette should be. With both big and small wells for mixing color and using larger brushes, the wells have a sloping configuration and a deeper "pool" to keep paint from evaporating. There are no sharp edges which protect your brushes and is easy to use with a palette knife. To top it off, it is sized to fit into a backpack or briefcase.
