Love the handle. I have several of these ball tipped tools. This is my favorite due to the aesthetics and ergonomics of the bamboo handle.
I love this skunk brush! It's light weight in the hand and holds a lot of media/ink allowing me to make a single stroke 'forever', before having to reload. While it makes wonderful unexpected and organic marks, I can have quite a bit of control with it, and make incredibly delicate, whisper thin marks as well as bolder marks. It is a very fun and versatile mark maker!
I have the 2.5” brush. Beautiful to look at and to hold. It has a good feel in the hand. Nice balance. For me, it had a small learning curve to get it to do what I wanted with the broad strokes, but then I was off and running. I’m still exploring. I like how it lays down the ink. I have three other Elizabeth brushes and happy to add this to my collection. Another winner!
This ermine brush feels very light in the hand. It can make really fine, delicate marks, as well as more organic marks. And the burned bamboo handle is very interesting to look at! Enjoyable to use!
I am looking forward to reviewing these large lush hake brushes. They are thicker and seem to be better made that other large hake brushes I have bought from other sources.
Perfect grip for total control. So happy I bought 2 sizes. Thx Elizabeth
The ink pot is beautiful to look at and to hold, it is just the right shape to fill my brushes when I dip them.
The beauty of the brush rest is hard to put into words - the organic shape just begs you to pick it up; when you do, you feel the smooth, softness of the carefully prepared wood.
I cannot tell you how much joy these pieces give me. I am so glad I treated myself to them. Both are imbued with the spirit of the makers. Prized possessions.
It’s a great Brush! I look forward to exploring its capabilities.
This sable brush has the finest point I have ever used. The belly of the brush holds a good amount of medium, so that I can make quite a few really expressive marks before I have to reload. And of course, it makes fat marks as well. The handle is a vintage wooden spool embellished with red painted lines, and tiny red dots around the ferrule. The ferrule is also wrapped with a silver colored wire and copper wire. The final touch of artistry in this brush is a tiny seed imbedded into the spool. As always, Elizabeth has created a work of art for making works of art!
Elizabeth, so pleased to open my package from you!!!! First, a personal note was lovely… always nice to be acknowledged and appreciated. Thank you for recognizing me as a previous customer.🤗…. And then aspecial giftie!!! So exited to have 2 different tools to try out. I have never tried encaustics, i plan to use these tools on a jelly plate, a new experience for me. Thank you for your generosity . I look forward to viewing all your gorgeous brushes!!!!!❤️
The spectacular blue and gold parrot feathers are so beautiful I was afraid to use this brush for fear of ruining the feathers. But when I did use it, with sumi ink and fluid acrylic, I loved the marks it made. All varied and unexpected. A very expressive brush! The handle is a unique vintage quill bobbin spool, wrapped with copper wire. Really lovely! To properly clean this feather brush, I followed Elizabeth's Youtube on 'how to clean feather brushes', and it cleaned up perfectly! It was also extremely well wrapped and packaged for shipping. I have several of Elizabeth's brushes, and each next one is more beautiful than the last! All are a pleasure to use, and all are skillfully crafted and aesthetically designed. Thank you, Elizabeth!
This is a very special brush and a work of art in its own right! The rooster saddle is a thick cluster of 5" long rusty/orange colored feathers, and the handle is a very unusual piece of bamboo. The bamboo looks kind of segmented, with thoughtfully designed 'burn marks' that compliment the growth pattern of the bamboo. The end of the brush has a really cool seed/nut with leather loop, and near the feather end of the brush, there is a tiny little seashell nested into a natural depression in the bamboo. A beautiful touch! Making a brush stroke feels soft and silky, and the marks varied and unexpected. It came very well and protectively wrapped and packaged. The feathers were covered by a cardboard tube, and then she wrapped the brush in bubble wrap, folding the ends of the tape back upon itself, which made pulling the tape off of the bubble wrap so much easier . Very thoughtful! Another absolutely gorgeous brush by Elizabeth!
This particular parrot feather brush has shorter feathers and dances across the paper, making lovely unexpected marks. I find all the colors in the feathers so beautiful and inspiring. The bamboo handle has her signature 'burn marks', as well as a row of little artful red dots down the side and end of the handle. Lovely! I followed Elizabeth's Youtube instructions on 'how to clean feather brushes' and the feathers cleaned up perfectly. And, when shipped to me, it came very carefully and well wrapped, and the feathers came through in perfect condition! This is so fun to use!
This brush is perfect for glazes and washes. It works great when I want a softer look to my brush strokes. I love the feel of this brush as it glides across the paper.
This brush is lovely to look at and feels really good in the hand. The bamboo handle is very satiny and smooth. I find this white horsehair ever so slightly coarse, yet smooth to the touch and it makes nice firm strokes as well as fine line strokes. I use it with both fluid acrylic and sumi ink. This is one of my "workhorse", go-to brushes. Elizabeth is a talented and skilled brush maker! This brush has an elegant simplicity about it's design and is so well crafted that I derive pleasure in just looking at it!
