The Escoda Series 8146 is a mottler style flat hog hair brush with a single thickness hair density in the ferrule. The typical, flat handle is similar to house painting brushes and implies broad and flat brush marks covering larger areas. This style of brush is perfect for laying in large areas of colour, making sweeping brush marks as well as applying gesso and some varnishes (depending on the surface texture).
Made of superior Chungking hog bristle, this brush is traditionally used in oil painting and is of the highest quality. Its natural firmness and responsiveness of fibre responds perfectly to more or less dense oil and acrylic painting techniques. Unique to Escoda brushes the patented triple crimp ferrule ensures a lifetime of use. Each brush is expertly made by artisan brush makers in Spain.
