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.

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. 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.
After years of trying to find a linoleum product that would be easier for artists of all ages to carve on, we have developed an innovative material that seems to be the answer and it can be worked mounted or unmounted. Working with traditional lino tools, it cuts like butter. It leaves beautiful, clean edges and works well on curves and tight corners. It is really an answer for those who have wrestled with tough or hard linoleum in the past. One of its real advantages is that it has a long shelf life - as much as ten times longer than that of traditional lino - so it will stay workable for much longer.
• Cuts like butter
• Creates clean edges
• Has a long shelf life
• Unmounted is carvable on both sides
Perfect for the on-the-go artist!

Its historic fine snappy point and its ability to carry great volumes of color have kept it an industry leader.
