Cotman brushes are a range of pure synthetic water colour brushes of the highest quality that have been created using the same skills, generated over many years, as those used in making the finest sable brushes. They are the most widely used synthetic water colour brushes, and feature excellent colour carrying and shape retention.
The secret of the Cotman brush lies in the fibres. By blending fibres of differing thickness we achieve the three most important qualities sought after by the artist. The thicker fibres contribute strength and spring whilst the thinner fibres improve colour carrying capacity, which have recently been improved by 50%. Together they retain a perfect point, time after time.
The handles are specifically designed to provide balance and comfort when painting, the ferrules are made from high quality nickel-plated brass which helps to prevent corrosion, clogging of hair and enables easy cleaning.
Caring for paintbrushes is essential to keeping them in good working condition and to their life span.
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.
Practical information: 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.
