Winsor & Newton have a wide choice of brushes to give artists the opportunity to choose them depending on how they feel to the artist. For stippling, a stencil brush would be too hard and if you want to stipple cloud effects, a softer brush would be more suitable, however it must also hold up to the stippling procedure. A good brush to use for this would be the Sceptre Gold range. The best brush within this range would be a series 101 round of size 12 or 14. These brushes have excellent spring and good carrying capacity. They are a mixture of sable and synthetic hair and will hold up to a lot of use and are suitable for acrylic, oil or water colour.
