The Omega #40 Lily Var brush is made with high-grade strong flexible China bristle. The end tips of these bristles have been flagged or split into multiple ends. This flagging makes for an excellent finishing brush which can smoothly apply free flowing finishes in shellac, lacquer and oil. The bristles are well-anchored to avoid any stray hairs in the final finish and the slightly chiseled edge of the brush allows for easy cutting in with the finishing material. The bristles are packed 6mm thick and mounted in a nickle plated ferrule. Depending on the size of the brush, the bristles run out from 46mm to 70mm.
