Note: Utrecht Art Supply (in Sugarhouse) has Red Sable brushes.

Detail Brush: A specialty brush you must order online BUT sometimes available at art stores. I use a Dick Blick brand: size 2 Studio Sable, Kolinsky Sable Detail. Also available: size 3 Winsor Newton Miniature Kolinsky Sable. Detail brushes have shorter hairs but are fuller at the ferrule to hold more paint. This brush used in dry brush stage.
