Tampico Fiber 12" Paintbrush
This mark-making brush is made to order by Elizabeth. The Tampico fiber brush will be a total of about 12" long (the painting bristle is about 8" 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 4" in length, the Tampico fiber bristle will be about 8" in length
The fiber is stiff, strong, and has great spring- it is a high-quality fiber that will hold up.

Brush can make many interesting marks and is fun to use
Give this brush a try! Lovely to look at and a joy to use.
This brush is gorgeous!! I just love the way it feels!! Can’t wait to see it in ink!!!
This brush has so many possibilities. So far I’ve only used it with black ink for gorgeous mark making. I’m looking forward to using it with multiple colors on a very long sheet of paper.
It is definitely as flexible as the description states. I got the long brush because I can always grip farther down the fibers for a tighter, more controlled stroke. I always look forward to Elizabeths emails!
