Combining traditions from both silverpoint drawing and watercolor painting, this brush is an innovative, modern and elegant tool.

At one end, it has one of Da Vinci's most classic brushes - the Squirrel Mop Brush. Made from pure blue Russian squirrel hair, this brush tip has been shaped by hand and is carefully bound with brass wire by highly skilled and experienced brush-makers in their German factory. Squirrel mop brushes are fantastic watercolor tools to create a range of fluid marks from large, fluid, deep washes to intricate line work. The natural hair has an outstanding color holding ability and flexibility.

At the other end is one of the most innovative drawing tools on the market: the Ethergraf. Inspired by silverpoint drawing, this metal tip is made from a unique, specially developed alloy that allows artists to draw on any paper they like (unlike silverpoint which can only create marks on specific surfaces). This is because Ethagrafs create marks by oxidising the paper's surfaces, resulting in beautiful, subtle, permanent and waterproof drawings. You can, therefore, use an Ethagraf to make a light underdrawing for a watercolor painting, or add subtle details to your painting once it is done without muddying your colors.
