Kolinsky is a type of mink, which is a member of the weasel family. It is native to Siberia (Russia), where the cold weather allows the animal to grow a thick, long coat. Only hairs from the tail are used in making artists' brushes, while the rest are used by other industries. The finest Kolinsky brushes are not recommended for use in oil paints, because the harsh qualities of oils will damage these brushes.

The male Kolinsky tail hair is used in making the finest Kolinsky brushes because of its superior quality. Female Kolinsky hair has less life compared to male hair. The very finest watercolor brushes are made from 100% male Kolinsky hair, but most Kolinsky brushes are made with a 60% female to 40% male mixture. The best brushes will spring or snap back straight after bending, while the brushes made of mixtures will hold a slight bend. No brush compares with the Kolinsky for control and resilience; it is the ultimate in artist brushes.
Ideal for Egg Tempera .



Script brushes represent premium quality artist paint brushes which are designed to satisfy increased consumer demands for a higher level of performance. Script brushes are pointed, narrow brush with very long hair. The great length of the hair enables to draw a long consistent line without reloading the brush. It is necessary for this brush to "hold" a lot of color so as not to run dry before an artist is finished with a scroll or line. Script brushes is for making a very consistent or fine line and are ideal for creating vines, curlicues, writing, and other fine details of one stroke designs. Many script brushes are made of sable hair, but squirrel and sabeline are also commonly used. The longest sable hair does not possess much spring because the belly of the hair is exposed beyond the tip of the ferrule to gain usable length. These brushes features clean chiseled edges to create crisp accurate strokes.
