Gilding brushes – from squirrel hair to synthetic fibres
Our brushes are specially produced in brush factories using squirrel hair, red sable, badger hair, ox hair, bristle and synthetic fibres. Through the use of new materials in the gilding trade, as well as the further development of gilding techniques, new uses are often found for traditional gilding brushes.
Please note that the same brush may be used by different gilders to perform very different tasks. But you will hardly find the typical net brush, bole application brush or gilder’s mop in any workshop. Remember: when it comes to gilding, anything that results in a perfect gilding result is allowed.
Eytzinger gilding brushes are carefully produced in small brush factories using high-quality hair. In general, it is important that the brushes are well cared for to ensure a long life-span in tough conditions.
Here you can find a large selection of brushes for gilders, church restorers and artists.
