25% Neptune waterbrushes
From Princeton Brush:
When we set out to create a synthetic version of squirrel, we developed a brush that may actually outperform the natural version. Neptune™ is our softest and thirstiest synthetic brush, delivering oceans of color. Experts in natural hair have been incredulous that this is actually synthetic. We are proud to offer Neptune™ in a beautiful range of shapes including mottlers and quills with rich wood tones and sea glass aquarelle handles.
We at the Art Store LOVE Neptune brushes! They have to be seen and touched to be believed. Spoil yourself with an excellent paintbrush at a great price; you won’t regret it!
