Artist Corner / Brushes: Isabey

The Siberian Blue Squirrel 6234 is Isabey’s most famous watercolor brush. Handmade by master craftswomen who apprentice for 10 years, it embodies the tradition of French artisanal skill. It is densely made with Siberian blue squirrel hair, capable of holding the highest volume of water possible and therefore allowing for unbelievably large and flawless washes, and has a delicate point for unique brush strokes and line work. The ferrule is made of genuine hand-tied goose quill.
