JOSEPHINE JMS Shaders: the best of quality in natural Kazan Sable hair brushes from Germany for all Artists! Flat square shaders made thinner for ease of “cutting” highlights and other special effects, as well as, for general painting.
This SET of 5 JMS Shaders contain 1 each of the 1/8″, 1/4″ 3/8″, 1/2″ and the 3/4″ brushes. The #1 (largest) has now been discontinued.
BRUSH CARE: being natural hair brushes, gentle care is required. Do NOT clean in harsh solvents; we recommend you use OJ1 Josephine Seminar Medium to condition the brushes; Rectified Turpentine Oil or Pure Clove Oil to clean them. NEW Brushes: wash carefully in mild detergent to get rid of the stiff sizing in the brushes (used to protect the new brushes from the Factory). Use your fingers to work the detergent gently up into the ferrule part of the brush. Rinse thoroughly. Shape flat and blot on a clean cotton cloth. Let dry. Then condition the Brush in the Josephine Seminar Medium before using and before storing after use. Always oil the brushes after cleaning.
If there is a factory imperfection on new brushes, call or email us immediately. Otherwise, brushes are not returnable.
