Product Description

  • Ideal for blending, glazing, and fine detail with oils or acrylics
  • Synthetic medium stiff filament is durable; mimics natural mongoose hair
  • Spring is good for moving full bodied color
  • A short flat head for creating sharp edges with control
Additional Information

For many years, natural mongoose was considered a stiffer alternative to sable, with the advantage that it had more spring and so was better for moving heavy body color. However, the mongoose is now classed as an endangered species. Winsor & Newton have therefore developed Monarch - our synthetic alternative that mimics the characteristics of the natural hair. Monarch is made with the highest quality blend of polyester filaments to provide the ideal flexibility needed when working with heavy body color. Hog can sometimes be too stiff to blend color on the canvas, whilst sable may not be stiff enough to add texture, precision and detail - The flexibility of Monarch is in between hog and sable and so gives you the total control you need. Monarch brushes have seamless, corrosion resistant ferrules with long, rich brown stained handles.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I ordered this brush size (#12) thinking it was the size of my other #12 brushes. I was very surprised to see the bristles are only 1/2" wide and 1/2" long. Example: My 12" flat/bright Grumbacher brush bristles are a little over 1" long and 1" wide as well. Now I know that brush manufacturers vary in their description of brush sizes. There is nothing in the ad to indicate the actual bristle size, which would be helpful.
Nevertheless, I have enjoyed the WN Monarch #12 bristles because they are taut and bouncy, which I prefer. The ad says they are suitable for oil AND acrylic painting. I paint in acrylics and have wondered if that is causing a slight flaring of the bristles when covered in paint. So far it has not been a problem; I've learned to compensate.
NOW I would like to purchase a #14 just like it, but can't find a source.
Love these brushes. Researched brushes on and the winsor newton synthetic mongoose were highly recommended so I ordered some. Even my finicky sable loving teacher was impressed. Brights hold their sharp edges and rounds hold their points. Hyatt gives great service. They arrived 2-3 days after I ordered. Thanks so much!
Holds lots of paints do can be cleaned without wearing out as bad as bristle brushes!
