Hello ladies, I just got it a few days ago , I'm way too excited about this second canadian squirrel, it has been a long awaited one for me LOLLL and after several uses and washes
so far from what I can tell they all has a good amount of spring so it really does the best work at blending and depositing color. It feels soft and wonderful on the skin ,certainly not as soft as some-grey or red squirrel but really its just a little bit
although they may have been made from the same type of hair but they tend to be a little bit different. My first version of red squirrel blush brush is slightly softer than the other two, not sure but I think my brush is actually getting softer and I've had it over a year now
and as you can see the 1st red squirrel brush is more splayed out especially if you're looking on the flat side of the brush ,its similar in shape to the canadian squirrel second batch but not quite , canadian squirrel first batch has a bit more narrow at the tip and second batch of canadian squirrel is slightly larger than 1st batch and a bit more fluffy than both brushes
Anyhow, the painted flower, canadian squirrel first batch doesn't seem like hand painted imo as I couldn't see any brush strokes of some type or even the very faint , the surface does feel too smooth to the touch and I almost can't feel the tiny little layers of it as I pass my fingers across paint, it looks more like a thin layer of screen printed if you ask me. or different techniques of maki-e, MAYBE? on the other hand you can tell there's little brush strokes or some kind of sprinkle of gold powder?? on the canadian squirrel second batch brush. I think I need a magnifying glass for my brushes now LOLLLLL Overall
I do love the these canadian squirrel brushes, but second batch, it really seems to be the star of the twoWell...I can't get this one out of my mind.
