What's A Water Brush?

I like to use water colour paints. In fact, while in school, that was the medium I used for most of my artwork. However, I can't tell you the number of times I knocked over water containers or how much mess I would make. (It didn't help that I would sit on the floor and place the container right next to my foot or knee.)

Anyway. I found myself browsing around a New York art shop some time last year, where I stumbled upon these brushes by KURETAKE CO. LTD.

What's so special about these brushes? They hold water. By that I mean that you don't have to fill a container with water anymore because the barrel of the brush stores water. To "activate", gently squeeze the barrel and the water runs down to the bristles.

What I like about these brushes.

  • They do NOT leak. I am so serious. I have had these brushes for about 10 months and have never had a leaky situation. Isn't that great?
  • It's a great tool if you need to paint somewhere that is far from water.
  • I'll also add that the brushes appear to be durable, as the plastic has not split or cracked.
