Connoisseur is an artists' water colour brush formed from carefully calculated blends of Prolene and Sable. It feels and looks like sable. The belly holds colour and points in the manner which one has come to expect frm a Pro Arte brush. But it also delights the thrifty with the long lasting synthetic content. Designed and formulated for use as a water colour brush, it performs well in every way and has been a great favourite with artists for many years. Seamless nickel ferrules with black polished handles with red and white tips.
