Black Coarse Horsehair Paint Brush
This brush was made with my high-quality black, coarse horsehair. The brush has a ceramic ferrule. The high-quality black horsehair is super-coarse, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of dynamic marks. The head of the brush is SUPER full and thick, it will hold a lot of media. The bristle is short and blunt, which creates a brush that can handle thick media, such as cold wax and gel mediums if desired. If you are looking for a brush that is ideal for glazing and making scrubby marks this is it.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is ceramic
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The dark auburn horsehair is 1.75" X 1.5" in length/width
- The handle (including the ferrule) is 4.5" in length
My brushes are made to create a vast array of marks. When I make a brush I think about all aspects of the tool: how it looks, how it feels in the hand, and how it paints - to ensure that the end product is a true "fine art tool".
