Construction and quality of this brush makes it a life saver for wash and background work. Soft white hair will pick up delicate colors and lay them down in a uniform, even fashion. Unlike other soft hair brushes, the Hake brush performs better due to the “actual” length of its hair. Hair is stitch-tied into the handle, thus it is securely in the brush. Most importantly, the long hair can hold a huge volume of color for magical results. The handle is unlacquered to prevent chipping or cracking when soaking in water.
