The fibres are firm yet pliable. The shape is flat and the ends taper to an angled precision edge. This allows for great versatility in application. It can draw a precise line using just the edge, or can layer emollients in each pass when using the side. It can even apply a precise dot at the point of the tip. The chrome finish resin handle measures 150 mm long, and is weight balanced to be more agile. Like all ABT brushes, the fibre bundle is composed entirely of NuFibre™, a man-made monofilament which out-performs animal hair.
