Large Parrot Feather Sumi-e Paintbrush With 17" Long Feathers
This is listing is for a handcrafted very large parrot feather Sumi-e paintbrush which was made with vibrant dark & light blue, red, and yellow parrot feathers that are 17" in length. These types of feathers are special, I only get a few every year ( I had enough to make only 2 of this type of large, flexible brush). They can make very interesting and energetic marks and have terrific spring and flex.
This brush in particular has very long feathers. The ends of the feathers are soft, flexible, and bend easily. This will allow the brush to make delicate marks by pulling the feathers lightly across the painting surface. The marks are similar to the much smaller brush in this video only on a much larger scale.
The bamboo handle is 11" long and has a leather hanging strap.
Feather brushes are also very durable and clean up well. The smaller brush that I use in this video is 8 years old.
