Handmade Sumi-e Paint Brush with 3.5" White Goat Hair Bristles and a 8.5" Bamboo Handle
This brush was made by Elizabeth. It was made with TX bamboo and white goat hair bristles. The Bamboo handle is actually the root section of the plant, and has a lot of interesting detail.
Goat hair or 羊毛, youmou is flexible, durable, yet super soft and very absorbent. Soft brushes are a bit more challenging to master, but if used skillfully deliver very interesting, and to an extent, unpredictable lines.
This brush was made using high quality goat hair, the handle has been conditioned with beeswax paste and has a leather hanging strap.
I consider my brushes to be a work of art in themselves, that being said they are made to make art.
