A Nylon tip brush with excellent control for fine line work or Chinese/Japanese calligraphy. A re-fillable cartridge that screws securely on the base of the brush, and is the handle of the brush itself. Use any water-based inks or watercolours that you like, for your colour or black ink work. Add water to a black ink for interesting shades of grey! The brush re-activates when left for some time, by simply dipping the tip in water, and squeezing the handle reservoir. Wash brush in warm water before using. Available in Fine, Medium and Broad tips.
A new development has been the combination of squirrel and taklon.
TAKLON For point and spring, SQUIRREL for colour carrying capacity. This mix gives a superb brush
– For watercolour at a much lower price than sable.
– Traditionally watercolourists have used brushes made from squirrel, however the hair is expensive.
20% of the SQUIRREL / TAKLON brush hair is made from blue Squirrel. This hair is a lot lighter than the taklon so the actual hair volume for the squirrel component seems much greater.
Squirrel retains lots of water and when combined with taklon it makes a perfectly affordable watercolour brush
