Winsor & Newton Monarch - Filbert

The Winsor & Newton Monarch Filbert brush boasts an oval shape that expertly combines the control of a short flat brush with the softer edges of a round brush. This professional-grade brush features synthetic hair that mimics the look and feel of natural Mongoose hair, which is now an endangered species. 

The polyester filaments in Monarch are stiffer than sable hair but softer than hog bristle, making it an excellent choice for subtle blending, glazing, and fine detail work. Additionally, synthetic hair is more durable than natural hair and has more spring, making it ideal for moving heavy-bodied oil colour while being less prone to damage from solvents or paint. 

Whether you're using oil colour, water-mixable oil colour, or acrylic colour, the Monarch brush is suitable for all three. Its distinctive appearance features hair variegated in shades of ivory, gold, and brown, and each brush has a gold ferrule attached to a long, dark brown lacquered handle.
