The filbert comb produces a repetitive pattern of thin lines. The head of the filbert comb is curved, which offers a more precisely tapered finish to the stroke than a flat grainer or fan brush. It creates the fine-feathered structure of a bird’s feathers or tufts of animal fur with ease.
Our filbert comb is created with a blend of multi-diameter Cultured Synthetic. The filaments are etched to create microscopic pockets for color to abosb into, creating a controlled release of color, firm chisel edge and incredible shape retention.
A perfectly balanced handle with six layers of filler, primer, paint and lacquer prevents water from penetrating to the wood. This ensures our handles resist cracking and increases the longevity of your brushes. We use solid brass ferrules which are crimped and meticulously inspected for shape and a scratch-free finish. We offer a fur-free promise, quality materials and tremendous care when designing and manufacturing our brushes!

This filbert comb seems to separate better than other brands I’ve used, giving me more fine lines. I have been a student of Willow’s for years and bought other brands she created but this is her best.
