Handmade Dark Auburn Horse Hair Paint Brush
This brush will be handcrafted by Elizabeth, using bamboo from TX and coarse horsehair, which are dense and very stiff. The hairs are coarse which allows the brush to make both wide and or very fine marks.
This brush will be made to order - please allow 4 working days to complete and send.
The brush head will be between 1.25"-1.5" inches in length and the brush handle is about 7"- 9" inches.
The bamboo handle will be soft and smooth and have a leather hanging strap.
Each brush is unique and one of a kind.

The first thing I did when I unwrapped my brush, was to run my fingers across the brush - the horse hairs we tough but supple. I knew that in my inexperienced hands I would be able to make the most wonderful marks.
At first my movements were stiff and cautious, but as I covered more paper, I found that the brush and I were flowing across the pages. The experience was like none I'd ever had in my short painting life. I am 70 and only recently taken up painting. This brush gave me joy and a feeling that I could make the marks I wanted, ones I could be proud of after all those years of thinking I couldn't make art. Thank you Elizabeth for the freedom the brush has given me.
