Short Cow Hair Brush, FSC wood handle, for Kindergarten/Preschool.
It is often very hard for children to keep a long handle properly balanced in their small hands. With this in mind, we have included a special, shorter and wider handled brush for Kindergartners and Preschoolers. The brush has soft bristles made of cow hair, a rust-proof, closed ferrule, is made of certified sustainable wood and comes in three sizes: #18, #20 and #22.

Why these brushes are quality brushes for little ones:
Our full FSC brushes are made of German cow hair, and/or Ilthis (polecat) hair and have a birch wooden handle.
The wood is obtained from responsible and controlled forestry in Germany and the Baltic States. The wax used to impregnate the wood is entirely from natural ingredients. The big advantage of this “coating” is that water and paint do not adversely affect the handle and damage it.
The handle has a nice natural “look” and feels somewhat rougher than if it was lacquered. This improves the grip. The bristles are soft, flexible and retain their shape, have a high uptake capacity and are ideally suited for all techniques of watercolour painting.
If these quality brushes are used, cleaned and stored properly, they last for years without loss of hair and/or form.
Do not use synthetic and chemical products when painting or cleaning. Just rinse under the tap with lukewarm (not hot) water.
It is most important to let the brush hang to dry, with the bristles down. In this way, you give the water time to drain out of the brush so that the glue is not dissolved in the ferrule, which attaches the hair to the handle.
