Daniel E. Greene, NA tells why his brush choices are Silver Brush. “ The shape of the Silver Brush Renaissance Cats Tongue makes this red sable a perfect cross between round, bright and flat. It allows me particular control for details. The Grand Prix Filbert combines flats, brights and rounds in one shape. The old masters used rounds, but filberts combine the best features of the rounds and flats. I recommend filberts over any shape.”
