This listing is for a coarse, stiff horsehair flat head brush. The design on the bamboo handle was inspired by the trees here in the Flathead Valley. I created a burn pattern on the wood and then carved in some details.  

    The key to this brush is having a short, coarse bristle, that is shaped fairly flat. I designed the bristle head shape with the idea of maximizing the area of contact with the surface of the painting and creating stiff bristles that can hold up to more vigorous mark-making. The coarseness of the bristle makes this brush an excellent choice for glazing, creating texture and subtle lines - It was designed to work with Cold Wax, but can be used with a variety of other media.

    The Flat Head Paintbrush:

    • The carved bamboo handle is 7" in length and has a leather hanging strap.
    • The bristle is 1.75" in length.
    • The bristle has a flat shape, with rounded corners.

    Clean-Up Information:

    • Use a common art solvent (such as orderless paint thinner) to remove paint/cold wax, then wash with a mild soap such as Dove or Murphy's Oil Soap to remove any residual media. 
    • Use your fingers/palm to rub the bristles together to loosen and remove the residual media from the brush head.

    I live this brush. it is beautifully made. It gives me the subtle texture that I want as well as nice fine lines when you pull it through the wet paint. I love all the products that I have purchased. They are great to work with and create truly beautiful textures. Very inspiring.
