Princeton 4750 Neptune Synthetic Squirrel Brush // Quill
Princeton, who over twenty years ago created a synthetic version of the sable brush, have created synthetic squirrel bush. Princeton’s synthetic squirrel brushes, like their synthetic sable cousins, were designed to surpass their natural counterparts. They're so soft and absorbent, that the experts in natural hair have been skeptical that these brushes are actually synthetic.
Princeton’s Neptune™ brushes hold colour excellently and come in a large range of shapes, including mottlers and quills. Neptune™ squirrel brushes have traditional solid wood watercolour handles.
