Raphael Stradivarius Imitation Kolinsky: Curved Round Brushes

For the artists looking for the exceptional attributes of natural Kolinsky hair, Raphael have produced the Stradivarius brush range: a first-class brush with an elegant black design and an exclusive synthetic fibre that rivals the Kolinsky hairs themselves!

Featuring perfect points and excellent water retention capabilities, the Stradivarius brushes have a great spring, shape and memory to them. Less fragile than its natural hair counterparts, these brushes are easy to clean, ensuring longevity.

With over 230 years of brush-making technology to their name, Raphael have produced an exemplary, world standard synthetic watercolour brush range, and we are thrilled to bring them to Australia.
