Maria sketches with the Size 6 Rigger

The Limited Edition Red Dot Rigger Size 6 is a long, thin brush that creates a beautiful range of expressive marks. You can load it with paint for delicate, continuous lines or fine details such as grasses and tree branches. Explore twisting it on the paper, pushing it down, lightly lifting it, and playing with dry-brush techniques for various textures and calligraphic marks. A rigger is a fabulous addition to any kit!

In this video, Maria demonstrates the Size 6 Rigger.

The Red Dot R3 Large Mop

We’ve loved experimenting with the R3 Mop to make soft gradients for skies, blending colors smoothly. The brush can be lightly dragged or danced across the page for foreground details, creating delicate lines and expressive textures. A brush can be an extension of our arm and imagination. We love to explore the mark-making possibilities and hope you enjoy the R3 Mop as much as we do.
