What brush is this? *pic*

It has a cool spiral handle.

It's used by Charles Sluga in an older video. I asked him on Instagram and he said "Raphael 803 squirrel mop" but the photo of that brush doesn't match this picture, so... I don't think that's it.

Anyone have an idea?

Looking at it, I don't think it is a cut spiral just a happenstance of the random grain.

It might be the brush he said but hand carved, like this one:

It's probably just a well used brush, or a unique grain on the wood handle, or just an older version, the written label might have even worn off.

If he says "Raphael 803 squirrel mop", and you can't see any marking, that is probably as close to knowing what it is. Even though the spiral grain is distinctive, it mostly matches the simple wood handles they come with. From what I can see, it's just a quill brush with a very plain wood handle, not even stained.



Its still clear it's a squirrel mop, probably higher end like the Kazen the 803 is made out of, so if its not exactly the Raphael, any squirrel mop will likely do.

You can get these cheaper, real squirrel but probably not Kazen, with the Jackson art supplies house brand brushes, these also have plain wood handles. The Raphael are a premium brand for brushes, not cheap.

I have seen that brush photos somewhere else too, but can't remember where. It is possible that there may be limited batches of them made.

They are not hand carved. Quite simple to make actually. It is a round handle turned on a lathe. One just needs to drag a piece of sandpaper up and down while turning it very slowly to do that. One can do it at home if one has a lathe like thing. Attaching the brush head is a different matter altogether. I have not managed to attach them without breaking the brass wire, even after applying the common tricks.

Those brushes are discontinued. I would love to get my hands on a #6 and #8 but by the time I found a vendor they were sold out of everything over a #3. I picked up a #3, #1, #0, #00, #000 and I LOVE them. So sorry Arches discontinued them. I bought duplicates as back ups for when I wear them out. I turned one of the #3s into a travel brush.

I found mine at The Fine Art Store.
