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.

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.

Casein Emulsion is the pure casein binder that is used to make casein paints. As such, it can be mixed with casein paints to improve the brushability or flow without altering any other characteristics. When using casein paints for very thin washes, mix one part Casein Emulsion with five parts water to ensure color brilliance and to maintain adhesion and integrity of the paint film.
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.
