Russian Red Sable brushes by da Vinci are excellent for oil painting and are composed of red sable from the Ussuri River region. They are expertly shaped for spring, resiliency, color-carrying capacity and are notable for their ability to hold a sharp edge or point. Color can be spread thinly and evenly for subtle shades of color, structuring or layering. Excellent for precise, controlled brush strokes, detail work, and fine blending. Set in seamless, nickel-plated brass ferrules that are rust-resistant and long lasting.
