Dark Auburn Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush
This unique and beautiful brush was made with bamboo root and dark auburn horsehair. The bamboo handle has a ceramic ferrule with a sgraffito design carved into it. The horsehair is a wiry, course, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks. The horsehair has been cut into a short, blunt slant shape. This shape can handle a wide variety of media, including thicker paints. It can create great texture and lines because the bristle is stiff.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap with a handpainted ceramic bead
- The ferrule is ceramic and has a sgraffito design
- The Dark Auburn Horsehair is 1.5" in length
- The Handle is 9" 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".
