Cotman Watercolor Brushes Cotman Watercolor Brushes

For over 150 years Winsor and Newton brush makers have applied their knowledge to produce brushes of the highest standard. Cotman brushes were the first complete range of synthetic brushes to be developed by Winsor & Newton.
In creating this range of pure synthetic brushes, Winsor and Newton applied the same skills, generated over 150 years, as those used in making the finest sable brushes.
The secret of the Cotman Brush lies in the fibers, by blending synthetic fibers of differing thicknesses, they achieved the three most important qualities sought after by the artist.  The thicker fibers contribute strength and spring whilst the thinner fibers improve colour holding capacity.  Together they retain a perfect point, time after time.
A wide range of sizes and styles to suit all applications is available giving most of the qualities of sable at an economic price.
The range features blue polished handles (except series 777) and seamless nickel plated ferrules. Suitable for use with watercolor and all water and oil based media.
