Thread: W&N size 0 = Rosemary and/or DaVinci size...?

    Default W&N size 0 = Rosemary and/or DaVinci size...?

    I'm concerned that my main brush might be starting to fail, so I'd like to order a couple of new ones to start getting used to them. I lucked into a really great W&N series 7 size 0 last time, best brush I've ever had. But I've certainly had a few not so great brushes from W&N, too.

    I've heard a lot of good things about the Rosemary and DaVinci brushes, so I thought maybe I'd try those. But I'm not sure which of their series and sizes is most comparable to the W&N series 7 size 0. If anyone could help me out with some opinions on that, I'd really appreciate it!

    My W&N Series 7 Regular #0 looks to be about halfway in between the #0 and #1 of my Da Vinci Maestro Series 10's. Just eyeballing them though.

    Hope that helps.

    this is what I ordered from Rosemary & Co previously:

    1 x Series 22. Pure Kolinsky Designer. Size: 1 £4.20
    1 x Series 272. Mongoose Rounds. Size: 1
    - Handle Type: Short Handle £3.00
    1 x Series 42. Pointed Round Pure Squirrel. Size: 2 £1.56
    1 x Series 22. Pure Kolinsky Designer. Size: 0 £3.90
    1 x Series 323. Kolinsky Sable Spotter. Size: 2/0
    - Handle Type: Short Handle £2.62
    1 x Series 323. Kolinsky Sable Spotter. Size: 3/0
    - Handle Type: Short Handle £2.40

    the Mongoose and Squirrel are really soft, I just got them to see what they are like, I use the Mongoose for washes, and the Squirrel for feathering, sometimes
    The series 22 are similar to W&N series 7, the 323's are a little shorter with a bigger belly, akin to the series 7 miniatures, which I like too
    I bought them a year ago and they are still as good as new

    The sizes shown on Dick Blick for the brush heads should help for the W&N v. Da Vinci Maestro They don't stock Rosemary & Co. brushes unfortunately.

    You'll have to do some metric/imperial sums I'm afraid!

    I recommend a rosemary series 22 size 0.

    I also like the squirrel size 3.
    I use this a lot of painting in a loose style.
    The softness is really good for overbrushing.
