This thinner has been specially developed to maintain the oily feel and keeps Artisan color open longer than water. Although water is suitable as a diluent for the color, its speedy evaporation can make the color thicken upon the palette much quicker than conventional oil color would when used with turpentine. As Artisan thinner does not form an emulsion with the color, there is less color change than there would be with water.
• Low odor
• Made in France

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.
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.
