We rescued this trio of high-quality watercolor brushes from deep inside the virtual discontinued bins of one of our art supply distributors, as the company was consolidating with another and changing out their brush lines.
Until they were discontinued, these Robert Simmons Sienna watercolor brushes were one of the best quality for price synthetic sable-style brushes available; now they're pretty hard to come by!
Although we especially like them for watercolor and gouache, the Sienna Brush was designed for artists working in all mediums who love the pointing, color holding, spring, sharp edge, and smooth application of a superior blend of filaments, but equally demand durability and value associated with synthetic brushes.
The handles are made of kiln-dried birch wood, forested in Maine, and multi-coated in high gloss lacquer to create an attractive and long-lasting finish. The brush itself is composed of high quality, state of the art, synthetic filaments resulting in a rich mixture with a smooth, soft feel which returns to a point or sharp edge every time. This luxurious blend allows for control in painting but with enough resilience to perform perfectly for years to come.
