Winsor & Newton Professional Monarch brushes
A professional quality, synthetic hair brush.
Monarch mimics the look and feel of natural mongoose hair (now an endangered species). Designed for use with oil colour, it is made from polyester filaments and provides a stiffer alternative to sable but is softer than hog bristle.
This brush is excellent for subtle blending, glazing and fine detail work. As a synthetic brush, Monarch is more durable than natural hair and has excellent spring. This makes it ideal for moving heavy bodied oil colour as well as being less prone to damage from solvents or paint.
