The CALLIA filbert is a brush shaped like an oval at the tip and is tapered to a chisel edge. The shape of a filbert makes it useful for basecoating round or curved areas, applying washes and painting flower strokes. It has incredible spring and snap, yet can blend very softly and is often used for pat blending techniques and merging values.
The filbert is created with our blend of multi-diameter synthetic kolinsky sable. The filaments are etched to create microscopic pockets for color to absorb into, creating a controlled release of color, 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!
