Elite™ Short Handle Kolinsky Sable Paint Brushes

Elite: Short Handle Synthetic Kolinsky Sable Painting Brushes

Kolinsky Sable Painting Brushes have long been recognized as the standard of excellence, a comparative benchmark of how other natural and synthetic watercolor painting brushes perform. Elite™ is a new synthetic-hair paint brush that is almost indistinguishable from natural Kolinsky. It is a challenge to see the difference. Aside from the more affordable price, it is the performance of this new synthetic hair paint brush technology that makes Princeton Elite™ the new standard for discerning watercolor painting artists.

What Does That Brush Do?
Kirk Larsen
Kirk Larsen
Artist/Painter

I have used Princeton brushes for nearly a decade. As a professional artist in both studio and plein air, I use a variety of materials. After finishing a painting session, I review the brushes I’ve chosen from my arsenal, virtually every painting has utilized one or more of Princeton’s brushes.
