Richeson's Quiller Water Media Brushes - Round


Collections: Brushes, Watercolor Brushes

Quiller Synthetic Watercolor brushes are truly advanced synthetic brushes. To design this 21st century brush, Richeson enlisted the aid of a renowned water media painter, Steve Quiller. Years ago synthetic brushes were not much more than chopped up fishing line bundled up and stuck on the end of a handle. They were horrible for the user, especially for the young student who often received this budget-priced creation.

Today Richeson has the ability to taper the strands of fiber so that each strand comes to a fine point. With careful selection of 11 different weights of fiber strands, Richeson gently mixes these into a marvelous brush head. The mixing of the weights is critical. With just the right amount of thicker fiber you can get just the right amount of hard snap to the brush. 

With the perfect mixture of a variety of thinner fibers Richeson has created the perfect color carrying blend. In selecting the perfect synthetic round brush, it must have a firm needle point, a body that will carry a large load of color and last, but very important, a body that will allow the color to gently release and not flood out on the paper. 

The 7000 Series of brushes is a wonder and at just a fraction of the cost of natural hair brushes. This brush has a beautiful gold seamless ferrule and is mounted on a classic matte black handle. This is truly the watercolor brush of the future.
