Fine artist, teacher, and author, Vladimir London, shares tips for using our Neptune™ Synthetic Squirrel Brush, Mottler Size 1″.
“This brush is one of the prettiest flat brushes I have ever seen! It comes in a miniature size (just one inch longer than the palm of my hand), yet its square 1×1” body is shaped to do the same job as longer-handled flat brushes.
It is soft, thirsty, has a well-shaped edge, and makes a great tool in any watercolor artist’s toolbox.
I take this brush on plein air and when travelling. Its compact size should not be misleading to what this brush is capable of producing: good size washes, long thin lines with its tip, and one-inch wide strokes with the full belly. It is also great for taking excess water from paper.”
