About This Product
Handmade in Italy and featuring an insanely long "dagger" tip, this metal travel brush is a secret weapon for urban sketchers everywhere. Despite the huge size of the tip, this brush tapers to a tiny hairline, so with a light touch you can use it for fine lines and detail work. Press a bit harder and rotate the brush to achieve a wide variety of different strokes, all saturated with paint or ink thanks to the high volume of fibers in the tip.
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.
Amazingly, the tip fits into the specially shaped handle for storage, so you don't need to worry about the shape getting ruined in your bag. Wet and shape the brush before capping it so that there are no loose hairs—putting this brush away dry will result in bent bristles.
