Winsor & Newton Sceptre Gold II are made from a mix of sable and synthetic fibres. A great brush for use with watercolour and fluid oil colour, acrylic, water mixable oil and alkyd fast drying oil colour.
The Sable hair provides excellent spring and the high-quality synthetic filaments ensure the brushes are soft enough to work the colour but with a strong snap to return to the original shape. Fan brushes are useful for blending, softening edges and creating texture.
The Sceptre Gold ll brushes respond in a similar way to sable but are available at a much more affordable price.
