BrokenToad grew from the belief that it is possible to have high quality hobby products at affordable prices. To achieve this we try to go the extra mile to discover what hobbyists actually want rather than to dictate what we think they need and with over 20 years’ experience in the miniature hobby world we feel we have the first-hand experience to know what a hobbyist expects and deserves from a product. We love our little niche community of hobbyists and hope we that we can help to make it a slightly more pleasant place to spend time doing what we all love.
MK3 Kolinsky Paint Brushes
BrokenToad MK3 Kolinsky paint brushes are individually handmade from 100% pure Siberian male Kolinsky sable
(Mustela Sibirica) hair, giving superior snap and paint retention, fitted onto a sleek wooden handle shaped to give the brush excellent control and balance. The brush head features an ample belly, capable of holding a generous amount of paint, which tapers to a very fine point allowing the paint to flow precisely and accurately onto the model. With its unique conical shape and excellent snap we feel that handmade Kolinsky sable hair brushes are the best choice for professional and hobbyist miniature model painters who require a natural hair paint brush.
Miniature Series MK3 paint brushes
These are considered a work horse brush and an absolute staple for miniature painters, the brush head has a large paint reservoir within the belly with tapers to a fine point at the tip. This shape helps draw paint into the tip and aids accurate application to the model, perfect for undulating surfaces and fine detail work.
Flat Head Series MK3 paint brushes
Using the same high quality Kolinsky hair as our Miniature Series, these brushes offer a wide flat surface which is perfect for painting large or smooth flat surfaces. This shape is very useful for applying washes or streaking effects to a model.
Spearhead Series MK3 paint brushes
Combining the best of both our Miniature Series and Flat Head Series, these brushes offer a flat head which tapers to a fine point for when a more accurate application is required from a flat brush. This shape is perfect for blending larger areas and applying glazes to a model.
MK3 Synthetic Paint Brushes
Fugazi Series MK3 paint brushes
Built to the same high standard as our Kolinsky hair brushes, the Fugazi Series MK3 paint brush has been made using 100% synthetic fibers that have been engineered to imitate the properties of Kolinsky hair as closely as possible. If you want the performance of a high quality paint brush but you don't want to rely on natural hair then this is the brush for you.
Conditioning Brush Soap
Over time paint brush hair can become dry and damaged, ruining the integrity of the brush and spoiling your painting enjoyment. BrokenToad Conditioning Brush Soap has been specifically designed to help aid in this problem, made using natural plant and vegetable oils our soap will help not only clean but also revitalise tired brushes by adding back the essential oils that brush hair loses during its lifetime. Our soap is completely none abrasive to gently clean brushes and contains no harmful chemicals or unpleasant odours. Simply use room temperature water to work up a lather in the pot with your brush, once the brush is clean reshape the tip using the soap and leave in the hairs for 30 minutes before rinsing to help condition and moisturise.
All of our Resin Cast models are produced in house, pressure cast using top quality polyurethane resin to give a highly detailed and smooth finish that provides the best canvas for painters to enjoy. As painters ourselves we understand that hobbyists in the current age expect and deserve a higher calibre of model from which they can seek to excel in their craft. Working from original concepts we collaborate with some of the world’s leading miniature sculptors to help bring our Resin Cast model range to life, our aim is that we can not only to reach but hopefully exceed these expectations and deliver a model of the highest quality that can take its place alongside the finest models in your collection.
