Escoda Tadami Synthetic Modernista Brushes


(♪♪♪) The Escoda family has
been making brushes outside of Barcelona, Spain,
for over 75 years. They’re known for
making some of the finest
brushes available, and they do this
by using only the finest materials they can find. The brush handles themselves
come from a factory in Italy called Minelli, and they’re made from
a renewable birch wood. The handles are manufactured
in different sizes to match the brush head so that
the artist has a balanced brush in their hands
when they’re painting. The ferrules are
manufactured out of brass, and they’re nickle plated. These ferrules are then
triple crimped onto the brush handle using a unique process
Escoda has developed. This triple crimping process
provides a very permanent hold between the ferrule
and the brush handle. Escoda uses a unique
epoxy blend to attach the hairs inside the ferrule
for a permanent hold. They adjust this blend so that
depending on the hair style they get the best
hold available. When brush hairs are
inserted into the handle, they’re tied into a very
tight bundle and compressed, inserted into the ferrule, and then the string
is released by hand to allow the hairs to
expand and fill the void inside the ferrule itself. This provides permanent
hold for the brush hairs. The brush head is shaped using
a proprietary molding process Escoda developed to provide
a lifetime of shape to that brush. For every use, this memory
inside the brush head returns to the shape that the artist originally
chose for that brush. Whether it’s bristle, sable,
or synthetic, Escoda produces some of
the finest brushes available worldwide. The Escoda Modernista is
a synthetic hair bristle designed to replicate the feel of a mongoose
natural hair brush. It’s made from
a Tadami filament and we use several
different thicknesses of filament to achieve
the right spring in the brush. We also use different lengths
to help achieve a more natural point
to the brush. The molding process allows
this brush to maintain its shape over the life. It’s available in both
a long handle and short handle brush. These long handle brushes
for oil and acrylic artists are available in filbert,
bright, and right. The Modernista is a very high
quality synthetic brush by Escoda. (♪♪♪) Captioned by GigEcast
