This oval shaped brush combines the control of the short flat with the softer edges of the round.

For many years, natural mongoose was considered a stiffer alternative to sable, with the advantage that it had more spring and so was better for moving heavy body colour. However, the mongose is now classed as an endangered species. Winsor & Newton have therefore developed Monarch - our sythetic alternative that mimics the characteristics of the natural hair.

Monarch is made with the highest quality blend of polyester filaments to provide the ideal flexibility needed when working with heavy body colour. Hog can sometimes be too stiff to blend colour on the canvas, whilst sable may not be stiff enough to add texture, precision and detail - The flexibility of Monarch is in between hog and sable and so gives you the total control you need.

Monarch Brushes have seamless, corrosion resistant ferrules with long, rich brown stained handles.

Suitable for use with all Oil, Acrylic or Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colours.
  1. An excellent brush for use with Griffyn Alkyd paints Review by Dorothy Scrivener

    This brush has the toughness of hog bristle with the flexibility of a softer hair. I have found it really good for small sweeping strokes which describe movement. It seems to keep its shape over a long time if carefully cleaned after use. It also wears well. (Posted on 08/04/2013)
