Our classic hand mounted badger brush is made out of the finest grouping of water badger hair. Stay clear of the 'BAD'-ger impostor whose hair is made out of goat hair that has been dipped into black paint to look like a real badger. These impostors are far too soft to move the glaze. Stiffer hair is good for softening and easier to clean as you go.

  • 3/4 inch thick, hand selected badger hair, which repels water
  • Resists fanning out with overuse
  • Best used with thin reversible water mediums (i.e. gouache, beer glaze)
  • See also Round Badger - a true innovation for thicker water mediums
  • Fantastic for burnishing Dutch metal w/o scratching (for gold leaf, Chiqueteur)
  • Size 2 best for smoothing intricate surfaces
  • Size 4 is the universal size - best for faux marble/woodgraining
  • Size 6 the best for your largest smoothing job - amazingly productive brush!
