The Best Sable Brushes for Watercolor

When deciding on the best paint brush for your watercolor painting, it’s important to consider the brush’s tip material as well as its size and shape. A quality brush will hold a good amount of water, release paint evenly, and won’t shed or split. Among the most popular brushes for watercolor are brushes made with hair from the red sable, actually a species of weasel, not a sable. The very finest hair comes from the Siberian kolinsky weasel, which has the longest, densest, and most luxurious fur; these brushes can be extremely expensive. But less expensive sable brushes, made from any species of weasel with red hair, are still a great choice thanks to their springiness and ability to hold water. See the best sable brushes below.
