I recommend that you use fine round red sable brushes. I use sable because of it’s superior brush fiber, thin and finely tapered with a soft long tip – perfect for the fine tiny detailing that is required to create quality scrimshaw pieces. The brushes have a seamless metal ferrule to provide safe, long lasting use.
This set of 3 brushes will give you years of use. Sized 0, 2/0, 3/0; and perfect for applying a very small amount of ink in very small areas.
