I am attached to these implements most of all. In fact revealing the brand and name feels like I am exposing my children to public scrutiny. I happened to come across a squirrel mop at a local art store and on a whim and some suggestion by the friendly shop keeper, I bought it. The best $25 were spent there and then. Winsor and Newton sells a mean squirrel mop but they never seem to be freely available. Local art store is more than happy to order them for me. A size 0 is as good as a standard round #8. Talking about rounds, I own a Winsor & Newton Series 7 round #8 and round #10. Their feel is different from the more slick squirrel mops – the spring is higher and strokes have more character. However, the mops hold a lot more pigment and water reducing the number of times one has to return to the palette.
