KINGART® Equinox™ 747Q Quill Series Soft Synthetic Squirrel Premium Watercolor Artist Brushes
KINGART® set out to create and develop the finest quality synthetic version of Squirrel to outperform the natural version. These deluxe watercolor brushes feature a specially designed combination of synthetic Kazan squirrel hair and a black synthetic hair blend. This combination holds huge amounts of color and releases it with perfect control. The soft hair blend allows for delicate techniques like glazing and painting multiple layers, yet is firm enough due to the synthetic blend where lifting color is easy with a light and gentle scrub of the brush.
Equinox™ are superb quality brushes manufactured of a mix of triple width black synthetic fibers & synthetic Kazan Squirrel hair. The synthetic mix filament holds a huge amount of color and releases it with perfect control for the watercolorist, silk painter, and artists working with inks, dyes, acrylics, or gouache. Consistent water release and pigment flow like silk. Soft blend allows multiple layer glazing without disturbing previous colors, yet it's firm enough to lift color with a gentle scrub.
Featuring the latest synthetic fiber technology, Equinox’s multiple-diameter filaments are configured to replicate the smooth feel of natural Squirrel, with enhanced snap and resilient strength. Experts in natural hair have been incredulous that the Equinox™ brush hair is actually synthetic.
We are proud to offer Equinox™ watercolor brushes, handmade made with the finest quality materials including premium grade nickel-plated ferrules, rich wood stain handles, or aquatinted grey clear beveled edge handles depending on the series number. Equinox™ Brushes are perfect for artists that work with inks, gouaches, silk painting, acrylics, watercolors, and dyes.

- Handcrafted products are green. Work done by hand takes less energy than a mass production assembly line, which makes it more environmentally sustainable.
- Brush sizes — The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size may vary by manufacturer as brush sizes are not standardized. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from within a single brush line.
