About This Product
Handmade in Italy and presented in distinguished cherry travel cases, Tintoretto Watercolor Travel Brush Sets are a fine example of craftsmanship, tradition, and attention to detail. Each case is made from solid cherry, polished to a durable semi-gloss finish, and fitted with a magnetic closure. The channels inside are perfectly sized for Tintoretto travel brushes, and four holders are also provided to hold wet brushes vertically.
This set contains four round travel brushes made from high-quality synthetic sable. The brush tips are shaped by skilled brushmakers in Tuscany, drawing on decades of experience and the rich tradition of Italian brush manufacturing. You'll find that Tintoretto brushes offer greater control and more predictable performance than mass-produced brushes. This is due to the thoughtful and precise execution of the brush's shape, which can't be duplicated by less labor-intensive techniques.
Synthetic sable is a vegan replacement for animal-hair brush tips. Traditionally, sable hair has been used for detail work and clean lines, because sable brushes bounce back to their original shape and taper to a fine point. Tintoretto's synthetic sable matches those key characteristics while also being cruelty-free.
Each Tintoretto travel brush is built with a metal handle that doubles as a cap, so the brush is kept in perfect shape when not in use. The sizes included in this set are #2 Round, #4 Round, #6 Round, and #8 Round.
This set is also offered in synthetic squirrel, a softer fiber that absorbs more color but is somewhat less precise than synthetic sable.
