  • What buyers say about Winsor & Newton Sceptre Gold II Series 101 Short Handle Brush

    The brush size 16 was packaged in its original bag and has a plastic protectors on the ferrule, it is nice and sturdy, and it has a nice point so far.

    This brush is the smallest I have ever bought and it holds its load without flattening out into the ground, which is perfect for fine line work.

    I love the brown handle, it's what I used when I began painting, and I think the brush is a bit more floppy than my go-to one.

    These brushes are great for artists, students, and hobbies, and they are very easy to clean! I have many of the Sceptre Gold II brushes that I have purchased from Dick Blick. They are nice, smooth, and stay in great shape as long as you take care of

    The Series #202s have a longer hair than the #101s but are shorter than the #303.

    The handle says short, but it doesn't say actual length.


    I have a n 8 brush with an handle that is 18 cm long.


    Will this work with watercolor painting?


    It's a very good brush, it's not so hard as many synthetic brushes, and it will work with watercolor.


    What is the length and breadth of this item?


    I think it is about 18 cm long.


    I am wondering if anyone can tell me why the sceptre ii gold series brush has been discontinued by the manufacturer and what has replaced it.


    I didn't bother with it, but it's a shame.
