Winsor Newton Eclipse Black Sable
Hair Length: 3/8"
Overall Brush Length: 11-9/16"
The Eclipse brush range is made from Russian Black Sable hair which offers the perfect balance between stiff and soft hair brushes. With slightly more body and snap than red sable, but softer than hog bristle, Eclipse black sable (also known as "fitch"), is ideal for subtle blending and fine glazing as it shows very little brush strokes. It is also highly resilient and responsive, making it perfect for lightly thinned or "let down" oil color.
This brush has a double-bodied handle which provides exceptional balance and comfort. It is sculpted to offer a balanced grip at the tail as well as below the ferrule making it perfect for both easel painting and "close in" work.
The double thick line provides extra durability, color carrying capacity, and offers a broad range of finely controlled working properties.
