Centenary of the Great War

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

Great War Centenary 1914-1918/2014-2018

 


Hawk Miniature Paint Brushes produce a full rane of Kolinsky Sable paint brushes for the modeller.

 

The Kolinsky (Mustela Siberica) is a species of the Mink family, a member of the Weasel clan and a native of Siberia and northeast China. There is no doubt Kolinsky is the best hair available for the manufacture of artists’ brushes due to being conical in shape, strong in character with a long tapered point and thick belly. The excellent snap and spring together with immense liquid holding capacity make them a first choice for watercolourists. Though they can be used with any type of paint such as Oils, Acrylics and Enamels. The high cost of the hair being the only major drawback (usually weight for weight three times the price of gold). Once used however the difference compared to others is well worth the difference in price. Consider Kolinsky Sable a long term investment.
