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.
