Our long handled sable brushes for oils are irreplaceable for portrait painters and painters of realism. The silky smoothness of sable assures that minimal brush strokes are imparted to the paint surface. Sable still has a firm snap that allows confident control of paint. Useful especially with thin mixes and glazing techniques, sable brushes are prized in most oil painters’ brush collections. Series 7400 is a good way to experience sable at a manageable cost.
