Da Vinci's "Maestro" designation is reserved for brushes manufactured using male winter Siberian Kolinsky Red Sable fur. These are top-of-the-line, high quality brushes.
The extra sharp needle-like point and longer tapered hair length result in faster action at the tip and the tightest snap at the point. Expect superior spring and control, plus unsurpassed water-carrying performance.
Why we like this: "Full Belly Round" — Also known as a Reservoir Round or Reservoir Liner, these brushes are like the regular Kolinsky Rounds, except that they have a fuller belly for greater color capacity. It retains moisture longer to give you more working time on putting basecoat and color blending on miniatures. Perfect for painters in all climate, especially the dry climate such as Colorado and Arizona
Full Belly Round Size 0 is the common brush for laying down basecoat and color blending for almost all size of miniatures. For painting larger areas, such as cloak on 54 - 75 mm, we recommend Size 1 or 2.
