These Kolibri watercolor brushes are made with special synthetic hair to produce a brush that holds paint exceptionally well.

The unique surface of the hair shaft in conjunction with the brush body assures high color capacity.

Silver-Plated Brass Ferrules
The ferrule of each Kolibri Martisan Kolinsky brush receives two deep crimps. Deep crimping compresses the walls of the ferrule into the wooden handle, creating a mechanical lock that securely fastens the ferrule to the handle.
The short black polished handles are made of hardwood and are lacquer finished for long life. Only the best brush handles are dipped. They are made by lowering the handles first in primer, then twice in colored lacquer and finally in varnish—a total of four coats—for a lustrous durable finish.
