Cotman Water Color Brushes are very popular, due to their blend of differing thickness fibres. The thicker fibres give strength and spring whilst the thinner fibres improve color carrying capacity. Together they retain a perfect point, time after time. The handles are designed to provide balance and comfort when painting. The ferrules are made from high quality nickel-plated brass which helps to prevent corrosion, clogging of hair and enables easy cleaning. The range features a wide selection of head shapes and sizes to suit all water color techniques.

Galeria brushes have been specifically designed for use with acrylic color. The versatility of acrylic color places heavy demands on any brush which is why Galeria brushes are created to be strong and resilient, while offering flexibility and sensitivity in use. The unique mix of synthetic filaments has been developed to provide artists with perfect control for thicker application of colour and responsiveness, while maintaining excellent shape retention.
Monarch is a professional synthetic hair brush that mimics the look and feel of natural Mongoose hair (now an endangered species). Just like Mongoose hair, the polyester filaments in Monarch provide a stiffer alternative to sable hair but are softer than hog bristle which means this brush is excellent for subtle blending, glazing and fine detail work. In addition, because Monarch is synthetic, it is more durable than natural hair and has more spring making it better for moving heavy bodied oil colour as well as being less prone to damage from solvents or paint. Monarch is suitable for oil color, Water Miscible Oil color or acrylic color painting. It has a distinct appearance with hair that is variegated in shades of ivory, gold, brown and each brush has a gold ferrule attached to a long dark brown lacquered handle.
Series 7 is the world's finest water color brush. The standards of quality for this brush were set in 1866, when Her Majesty Queen Victoria gave orders that Winsor & Newton should produce the very finest water color brushes in her favorite size; the No.7. Today, Series 7 is manufactured from only the finest pure Kolinsky Sable hair, in rust-proof, seamless nickel plated ferrules with black polished handles.
University is a range of white synthetic general-purpose artists' brushes with distinctive red handles and white tips. Manufactured to high standards, these brushes are stiff enough to use with slightly more fluid oils and acrylics yet soft enough to use with water colors making University a genuine all-purpose range. The polyester filaments also offers excellent spring and head shape retention and will last a considerable length of time if properly cared for. The handles are finished in five coats of lacquer to protect the natural wood from swelling in use and to prevent any solvents from penetrating the wood. The affordability of University makes it suitable for all artists from beginners to professionals wanting an excellent inexpensive all-purpose brush. It's also a great range for crafters.
