DESCRIPTION 

Flat Polecat Hair Paintbrushes made in Germany for Mercurius Brand ( Art Makes Sense). The polecat hair paintbrush is somewhat softer than the cow hair brush, but still retains its strength. Its fine properties when using watercolours mean it is widely used in art therapy.

CARE:

Clean paint from bristles with warm water (water-based paints) and store with brush hanging downwards so water drips out of the ferrule. Leaving the brush laying flat or with the brush upward while drying causes water to stay inside the ferrule and will loosen the glue holding the cow hairs in place. Never leave brushes “soaking” in a jar of water as this will loosen the glue holding the bristles inside the ferrule.
