Handmade Sumi-e Paint Brush With A Black Bamboo Handle and Deer Hair Bristles
This brush was made by Elizabeth. It was made with black bamboo and 1" long deer hair bristles. The bristles are beautiful, pointed, soft and flexible, and the head shape is blunt.
The deer hair is from Montana, and has mostly uncut hair. The handle is 11 inches in length, it has a carved image of bamboo on the handle, and has been conditioned with beeswax paste. The handle also has a natural shell embellishment and leather hanging strap
I consider my brushes to be a work of art in themselves, that being said they are made to make art.
The 11 inch handle is really comfortable to hold
