Sumi-e Paint Brush With Dark Brown Horsehair Bristle and Bamboo Handle
This contemporary Sumi-e brush was made by Elizabeth with TX bamboo and dark brown horsehair. The horsehair bristles are soft, with some stiffness, great flex/spring and a nice thick head of hair/bristles (3.5X4 Inches). This brush has a wide, thick, blunt shaped bristle head and will make a wide variety of marks from fine lines to big and bold.
This brush was made using high-quality horsehair, the handle has been conditioned with beeswax paste and has a leather hanging strap with a bamboo bead. The handle is super soft and the shape feels great in the hand. The brush has heft, it will hold a ton of paint or ink.
I think of my Sumi-e brushes as works of art. That being said, they are made to make art and are high functioning fine art tool.
