The round Kolinsky watercolor brush from the lineo Series 195 is one of our best artist brushes with superior quality. Brush makers only use the finest Kolinsky Sable Hair (normal hair length), a seamless nickel ferrule, and a short black-lacquered wooden handle.
The first thing you will notice while holding a Series 195 brush is how it feels in your hand. With every size, brush makers found the ideal way to harmoniously balance the weight. This is one of the many characteristics which makes it so pleasant to paint with.
Wonderful Painting Characteristics
Series 195 forms a wonderful sharp point that will snap back in shape after every stroke. The brush has a nice belly, giving it a great color carrying capacity and a perfectly even and consistent color flow. Combined, these characteristics allow you to make impressively precise and long, flowing strokes.
Brushes from this Series are unrivaled in terms of quality, longevity, and painting characteristics. Together with lineo Series 95 (PREMIUM Kolinsky, available in sizes 4, 8 & 12), these brushes mark the highest level in traditional brush making. They are available from size 10/0 up to size 50. Handmade at lineo in Germany.

Our Understanding of Quality
It is important to us that the brushes you find in our online shop retain their good painting properties even after extensive use. Therefore, our brush makers only work with selected materials that preferably come from Germany or the EU. Not only does this mean shorter supply chains, but it also helps us with quality assurance.
Only selected pure Kolinsky red sable hair is used for this watercolor brush. A seamless nickel ferrule and high-quality glue are used to keep the hair in place and give the brush its shape. The glossy black lacquered wooden handle comes from sustainable forestry. The varnish is free of SVHC substances and other substances listed in Annex XVII of REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006. Our lineo painting brushes are traditionally manufactured by hand.
Depending on your preferred medium, the cleaning of brushes slightly differs. However, the paint should never dry on the brush because most paints dry waterproof and can otherwise only be removed with harsher methods. Here you will find a few tips and a video for cleaning your painting brushes.
