Tampico Fiber 6" "Shorty"Paintbrush
This mark-making brush is made to order by Elizabeth. The Tampico fiber brush will be a total of about 6.5" long (the painting bristle is about 2.5" in length).
Tampico fiber is super flexible (you can bend it in half and it will snap back), it is also a very fine fiber. Because of this, it works really well as an alternative to more traditional materials.
The fiber itself is from the cactus known by its common name, lxtle. The Agave Lechugilla plant is unique to northern Mexico where it only grows in the high altitude deserts. After the cactus leaf is harvested the fibers inside the leaf are extracted, dried, and processed to length.
Like any natural fiber, the bristles are completely biodegradable, making them an environmentally responsible choice.
The handle will have a leather-wrapped handle and hanging strap
Please allow 3 days for production.
Handle length will be about 2.5" in length, the Tampico fiber bristle will be about 6.5" in length
The fiber is stiff, strong, and has great spring- it is a high-quality fiber that will hold up. It can work with thicker media such as cold wax and gel mediums

I love the feel of this sturdy little brush in my hand. I am not 'an artist' but this brush, along with the others from Elizabeth, I've gifted myself, allow me to make marks that are meaningful.
The movement of this brush on the paper is so freeing. Using other tools, my marks have been unsatisfactory, stilted, but this brush somehow gives my hand and mind permission to move with grace across my paper. I don't really have the words to describe it, but I think it is 'Flow.'
Magical brushes, and so beautiful!
I love this brush - it moves with ease to get the most wonderful lines - it's just what I needed. It's a beautifully made piece of art itself.
Love all my brushes Elizabeth has made. The short Tampico brush gives me so much control from whispy lines to scrubbing paint into areas. This is my new go to brush. Thanks so much Elizabeth!
