Sax paintbrush is used for art education and activities, and is a size 6 flat brush for painting bold, linear strokes and washes. The brush head is white synthetic filament with a bristle texture for resiliency and enhanced pointing with sharp edges, and is versatile for use with acrylics and oils. The brush has a blue-enamelled hardwood handle for durability, and seamless nickel-plated ferrules for providing brush strength. Nickel is corrosion resistant, ferromagnetic, maintains much of its strength at high temperatures, and stays tough and ductile at low temperatures. The brush is suitable for classroom or home use.
