About This Product
Raphaël Precision brushes are designed to help artists make the perfect line, with a high-end synthetic sable fiber that remembers its shape and holds a point. These lovely travel brushes, part of Raphaël's Le Voyageur series, combine the advanced Precision fiber tip with a collapsible metal handle that protects the point from damage. That means you can toss this brush in your backpack or watercolor kit and head out; don't worry, your brush will be in perfect condition when you arrive. (Pro tip: get your travel brush wet and shape the tip with your fingers before closing it. That way, you won't bend the hairs out of place.)
As you'd expect from a legendary French manufacturer, Raphaël has given the Precision Travel series an excellent fit and finish. The Precision brush tip is firmly secured inside the ferrule, so you won't see stray hairs in your watercolor even with strong scrubbing. The metal handle is perfectly machined to fit straight when extended and slide together smoothly when collapsed. Finally, the Raphaël name is stamped in gold foil on the natural wood part of the handle.
Available in #0 Round (2.2 mm diameter) and #5 Round (4.5 mm diameter). Made in France.
