Handmade Dragon Paint Brush Set - Elizabeth Schowachert Art

Handmade Dragon Paint Brush Set


These brushes were made with black bamboo and my premium quality white goat hair and grey horsehair. The bamboo handle has an image of a dragon carved onto the handle. The smaller brush has a shell embellishment and copper fitting.

The larger brush handle has a craving of a dragon wrapping around the handle. It is hard to photograph, and really shows much better in person.

Each brush I make is different and unique. I try to bring out the voices of the materials I use, connecting them with each other in a way that makes them feel complete.

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".

The goat hair brush has a 5 inch long handle and 2.5 inch bristle

The grey horsehair brush as a 1 inch bristle and 4 inch long handle
