Artist Corner / Brushes: Raphael

Le 803
This watercolour wash brush is made with Squirrel hair, the finest natural bristles that can be found. The 803 is one of Raphael’s bestsellers. The tuft spontaneously gathers together and forms a point, as if by magic. Natural quill, short plain wood varnished handle, this brush is indivisible of Raphael story.

An exceptional synthetic fibre offering unequalled colour carrying capacity. The wavy fiber catches the water molecules and the colour, contrary to the classic synthetic fibres which are straight and lined up. Thus, thanks to this innovative wavy form, a Softaqua brush holds twice as much color.
