Was packing up my painting table the other day, when I reflected at the state of my current painting brushes. I am currently using Games Workshop detail and fine detail brushes for most of my painting.
So far, I must say, the brushes are doing a great job and line works and details with the brushes are great too. Come to think of it, since my last post in Oct 2010 which I mentioned about upgrading to GW brushes, it was like a year passed already. Time flies when you are painting… And the state of these brushes are still good and sharp tipped. I guess it all contributes to taking care of the brushes, after all they are also kolinsky bristles as well. Nowadays usually and faithfully, I would wash my brushes with shampoo after each paint session. I guess the shampoo help to keep the bristles clean and conditioned, as they are real hair after all.
Of recent, I been wanting to the try the popular kolinsky sable series 7 brushes from Windsor and Newton. They have 2 types, the normal series 7 range and the series 7 miniature range. The different is in the length of the bristles, where the miniature range having a shorter one. I am tempted to get the 2 types to try out the feel of it.
Meantime, anyone have any experience or comments about using Windsor and Newton series 7 brushes, or difference between series 7 and series 7 miniature? Cheers!
