Winsor & Newton Wash Squirrel Point Brush is made from the finest quality pure Russian Blue Squirrel hair for water colour painting as well as gouache, silk and any other fluid colour painting. Use to apply washes to paper or detail work.
The brush head of Winsor & Newton Wash Squirrel Point Brush is round with thick bellies which enables a large amount of paint to be held. The ferrule, used to hold the brush head in place, is made from natural goose quill instead of metal as it is more flexible and responsive.
