Eleven round size 12 watercolour brushes under test, ranging in cost from less than £5 to over £150. Which is best value?
Not all sable brushes are created equal, how some are slow starters, and new results for flat or ‘One Stroke’ brushes.
Careful choice of brush can deliver better value for money. We cannot all afford to part with £100 for each size 12 brush that we want, but there are some excellent alternatives which cost much less.
I decided that any method based on painting a wash out would be too erratic, and not give reproducible results.
