Susan Harrison-Tustain Signature Original Watercolour Brush Set 5261
The ORIGINAL da Vinci Susan Harrison-Tustain Signature Brush Set:
For many years I have loved my da Vinci brushes. You may also know how much I loved my Isabey quill brush. Now it is no longer in production. Some years ago I spoke with a representative of da Vinci in Germany for the first time. He knew of me and my work. He also knew how highly I regard the da Vinci handcrafted brushes.
I told him about the Isabey brush that is no longer in production. As a result da Vinci have created an even bigger and better quill brush for me – all hand made in Germany (each hair layed on individually). This new brush is brilliant. Not only that but da Vinci have put together a superb ‘Signature Set’ of watercolor brushes, perfect for watercolor painting using my methods and techniques. The other exciting news is that the brushes are rolled in a gorgeous soft black leather brush pouch.
The set contains 6 top quality da Vinci brushes:
- da Vinci MAESTRO Kolinsky sable brushes Series 11 Sizes 6 & 2 – These are the wonderful brushes I have always loved and used over the years. I show a Size 1 in my new Watercolor DVD, but the Size 2 does the equivalent job.
- da Vinci ARTISSIMO Kolinsky red sable quill brush Series 428 (prev 44) Size 3 – This size was not previously available. It is equivalent to a size 16. This superb brush is even better than the Isabey brush I treasured for so long.
- da Vinci NOVA Synthetic brushes flat Series 122 Sizes 4 & 2 – These have just the right amount of flex for effective and gentle scrubbing and softening edges – without endangering the surface of your paper. I have always used these – they are invaluable.
- da Vinci SPIN Synthetic wash brush Series 5080 Size 50 – 50mm (2″) wide. I previously used another brand which is very good – but this one is even better for ‘cutting’ around the subject when laying in large washes.
Each brush has my name on it and the soft black leather pouch has my embossed signature. It really is a superb set, elegant in style, practical and of course the brushes are my favourite brushes. There is room in the pouch for other brushes if you wish too. The extra good news is that the set is very reasonably priced when compared with purchasing the brushes individually.
