Black Velvet Voyage travel brushes have an exclusive blend of black synthetic filament with natural squirrel hair. A unique and responsive watercolor brush, able to absorb fluid media easily with the absorbency of natural squirrel, but lay it down with the tighter control of a synthetic. When not in use, these handy, pocket-sized brushes collapse and fit inside the handle for secure storage.
Dee Silver wondered whether there was a market in the U.S. for high quality brushes. Would people pay more for quality? Was the market enough for a realistic business? Would she be better off in Europe? In 1991, she founded Silver Brush and over the years her questions have been answered by the natural enthusiasm of customers. She started in the New York region but now her brushes are sold and relied upon by artists all over the country and throughout the world.
