Designed with control in mind, Trekell’s Onyx brushes unite precision with unhampered flow, all without the fear of flare outs. These brushes come on a 6" short, black and silver-lacquered handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules. Not the qualities you expect from synthetic bristles, right? And yet, like Trekell’s other synthetic brushes, an Onyx mimics nature incredibly well. We bet you can’t tell that these weren’t once part of a squirrel. So, the only difference is price. So, watercolorists, why wait? An Onyx brush will soak up what you need and paint exactly what you want.
