Wide Horsehair Paintbrush with Bamboo Handle WSB #102
This listing is for a handheld wide horsehair paintbrush. The handle is made with bamboo and has a burned-in square pattern. The bamboo handle also has been sanded and smoothed, creating a soft, satin finish. The end of this large, full brush has a natural round stone from Taiwan. The brush also has a leather hanging strap.
The premium black horsehair is very soft, has good flex, and has a nice natural spring. The bristle is both wide and thick.
The bristle is 9.25" wide, 4.5" in length. The handle is 14" wide.
This brush has a nice thick bristle that can hold a lot of media. The mark-making capabilities will be vast, from very wide bold lines to soft cross-hatching and textures.

This type/style of brush is quite a bit of work to make and the bristle requires a lot of hair. The price reflects both material cost and the build time :)
