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 squirrel. 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 squirrel is a vegan replacement for animal-hair brush tips. Traditionally, squirrel hair has been used for bold washes, highly saturated marks, and loose sketching. This luxurious synthetic from Tintoretto is soft and absorbent, with a generous "belly" to hold lots of color, and a fine tip with excellent shape memory. Synthetic squirrel is easier to clean and maintain than animal hair, and, of course, it's also 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 available in synthetic sable, a springier and more precise fiber that is less absorbent and less soft than synthetic squirrel.
