So What if the Ferules Pop Off!
The Winsor and Newton yellow hog hair brushes are the way to go for aggressive painting technique. Sure, the ferules pop off, they shed hog hair until broken in, and lack the bristle fibers of more expensive brushes. But what I love about these is the guilt they appease when you happen to leave a couple overnight to harden irreparably. Or, when a painting really gets going and you’re scrubbing away at that 12 ounce cotton duck, and the brush begins to look like it missed a few doses of Rogaine, you throw it away, along with the $1.99 you spent on it.
