“The world’s finest watercolor brush.”
The standards of quality for this brush were set in 1866, when Her Majesty Queen Victoria gave orders that Winsor & Newton should produce the very finest watercolor brushes in her favorite size, the No.7.
Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Brushes are made from only the finest Kolinsky Sable hair in rust-proof, seamless nickel plated ferrules with black polished handles. Series 7 brushes are hand-made in England by our expert brush makers, each with over 10 years experience. In larger sizes, each brush is packed into an individual box with a tag indicating the name of the Series 7 brush-maker who made the brush.
Each brush comes to a crisp point and snaps back into shape during use, with the right degree of spring to allow superior control between the brush and surface. The color flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough color carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow flowing gestural strokes.
