Palette and paintbrushes for watercolour


Some useful instruments to accessorise our range of paints, pastels and watercolour paper. 

Sold separately, we have on offer two natural bristle travel watercolour paintbrushes. Made in France, they cleverly and neatly fold up onto themselves for cleanliness, minimal size, and safekeeping.

The larger silver one is imitation petit gris, which translates as Blue Squirrel bristles and is suitable for ink work, gouaches and watercolour. It is both soft and supple. It is made by a special French company manufacturing brushes since the 18th century, and listed by the French government as a company of national cultural significance. 

The smaller brass-cased paintbrush is known as "Marte" (from marten) and is an even higher-performing bristle, extremely soft and flexible, allowing for different sized strokes and retaining a very good point for detail work. 

Also available is a round, ceramic palette, for endless colour combinations to be mixed upon. 

Important ! Please note that the palette and each brush are sold separately - if you wish to purchase more than one model, please add each item to your cart separately by selecting them from the drop down menu above.
