Handmade Sumi-e Paint Brush With 9 inch Grey Horse Hair, Bristles and a 32 inch Long TX Bamboo Handle
This brush was handcrafted by Elizabeth. It was made with TX bamboo and grey horse hair bristles. It has a ceramic ferrule that is a olive green color. The bristles are 9 inches long, natural, uncut ends, they are stiff, and have great flex/spring. The bristle head is really dense, full and the hairs have a lot of body.
This brush was made using high quality horse hair from the US, the handle is 32 inches in length, 1.5/2 inches wide and has been conditioned with beeswax paste. The handle also has a leather hanging strap and the top is embellished with a natural piece of driftwood from Northern Ca. The handle is soft and the shape fits perfectly in the hand.
I considered my handmade brushes to be a work of art. That being said, they are made to be used and as such will work very well. This brush will make very large expressive marks and will hold a lot of medium.
This is a very large brush and the shape of the bristle head has a beautiful natural shape. If you are looking for a brush that can paint very large canvas, this is it!
