Series 152 – Watercolor brush review – by Elke Memmler

I have extensively tested this new watercolour brush from lineo series 152. It is made of some amazing synthetic Kolinsky red sable hair and they have promised that I will not notice much of a difference.

I have extensively tested this brush and would like to give you my feedback and recommendation:

The brush can perfectly be used for all common watercolour painting techniques. The hair is an almost perfect imitation of delicate natural hair. It does not break, it does not spread and it bounces back nicely. This brush also permanently shapes a perfect point and there is no troublesome dripping, as it often happens with regular synthetic hair brushes. The brush should always be well wet and should therefore be able to hold plenty of water. Series 152 does all of this.

It is a great brush for slow, delicate painting, for the dry-brush technique, wet into wet technique, flat wash, graduated wash and other washing techniques.

Altogether I really recommend this brush. Another lovely product from lineo, handmade and individually tested in Germany.
