For artists who need greater control over thicker or larger amounts of colour, the Winsor & Newton Monarch short flat/bright brush is an excellent choice. Made with synthetic hair, this professional brush closely mimics the look and feel of natural Mongoose hair, which is now an endangered species.

The polyester filaments in the Monarch provide a stiffer alternative to sable hair, but they are softer than hog bristle, making it an ideal brush for subtle blending, glazing, and fine detail work. Additionally, the Monarch's synthetic hair makes it more durable than natural hair, and it has more spring, making it better for moving heavy-bodied oil colour. It is also less prone to damage from solvents or paint.

The Monarch brush is suitable for oil colour, water mixable oil colour, or acrylic colour painting and has a distinct appearance with hair that is variegated in shades of ivory, gold, and brown. Each brush has a gold ferrule attached to a long, dark brown lacquered handle.
