The squirrel 2-header is the original woodgrainer’s tool for mostly straight graining, best used with oil mediums. Replace the squirrel with water badger hair to get a slightly stiffer brush for today’s heavier water mediums. Both deliver the most realistic rendering in woodgraining by making a new print every time. Many brushes can be used to woodgrain, but there is no substitute for the squirrel and badger 2-headers. Each head is packed with hair so it can run a full length of panel without reloading medium. Also, great for painting the heartgrain on walnut.
