The Raphaël paintbrush with squirrel bristles is a high end paintbrush that offers good liquid retention and a very fine tip.
The Raphaël paintbrush with squirrel bristles is very supple and very soft. It allows creating wash drawings or very fine and precise lines. The small gray bristles are the smallest you can find in a paintbrush. The tuff of bristles gather together in a tip like magic.
Caring for paintbrushes is essential to keeping them in good working condition and to their life span.
Watercolors: dip the paintbrush in water and rinse in warm water.
Oil: dip the paintbrush in a solvent such as taltine. Clean in soapy water and rinse in warm water.
Acrylic: clean in soapy water and rinse in warm water.
Never let dry before cleaning.
Using a hydrating paintbrush cleaner after using taltine or soap prevents bristles from drying and keeps the supple shape of the paintbrush.
