Sumi-e Black Horsehair Paint Brush
This brush was made by Elizabeth. The handle was made using a beautiful piece of natural birch wood from the Flathead valley and super-premium black horsehair. The bristles are very soft, have natural uncut tips, are absorbent, and have great flex. The brush head is shaped with a nice flathead that is 3" in length and 3" wide.
The horsehair I used for this brush bristle is specifically for brush making. It is the best quality hair available and will perform beautifully.
The handle is 9" in length and has been conditioned with beeswax paste. The handle is sturdy, has good weight and the wormwood patterning acts as a natural grip.
This brush will hold a ton of media and has the potential to make very dramatic, large marks.
I consider my brushes to be a work of art in themselves, that being said they are made to make art.
