This unique Casaneo watercolor liner brush features two lengths of synthetic hair. Extra-long and needle sharp, synthetic Colineo hair provides the durable point. The body of hair surrounding the fine tip is made of Casaneo synthetic squirrel hair. The Casaneo fibers holds large amounts of water and colour to feed the brush tip.
Da Vinci Casaneo brushes are known for their suppleness and colour absorbing capacity. These brushes have been designed for watercolor and inks but also work well for fluid acrylic and silk painting.
For the love of animals…while the Casaneo brushes may look as beautiful as natural hair squirrel brushes they are actually manufactured from extra-smooth, slightly-wavy, synthetic fibers. They closely mimic the style and effect of similar brushes made from natural squirrel hair. Kazan squirrel hair has been getting more and more difficult to purchase during the last years. Therefore da Vinci decided to develop a synthetic fiber allowing equally smooth and elastic brush strokes as well as a precise painting technique. The brushes have been rigorously tested by professional watercolor artists and received rave reviews. Watch the videos below to see the water holding capacity and spring of this over-performing brushes. Pretty to hold and behold.
