499DV Da Vinci Traditional Wash Brush & Metalpoint Drawing Tip
Paint and draw like Leonardo da Vinci! The 499DV is an eloquent artist tool from the famous Da Vinci brush company. This wash brush features a metalpoint drawing tip for silverpoint, and is both historical as well as state-of-the-art!
The watercolour brush, which is a size 3, consists of the best pure blue Russian squirrel hair. Each piece has been shaped by hand, embedded in transparent plastic quills and is carefully bound with brass wire for superior longevity by highly skilled and experienced brush-makers at Da Vinci in Nuremberg, Germany. The Russian blue squirrel filaments allow for maximum absorption of water to assist the artist in creating flowing watercolour washes. The perfectly designed handle is compact and ergonomic. It is made from sustainable water-resistant Kebony wood. The name da Vinci is etched into the chocolate-coloured brown handle.
The other end of the brush carries a so-called Ethergraf metalpoint tip, manufactured by the Italian specialist company Napkin. The tip works in a similar way to a silverpoint drawing tool. You can draw on practically all modern papers. Ethergraf is non-toxic.
