Here’s a survey of watercolor brushes that I use
My Chinese Brushes from college.
These guys have been around for a long time and I remember feeling that I absolutely must use these whenever I was painting for our plates or exercises. It’s a shame though that I didn’t know back then how to take care of them well; one (not in the pic) was thrown away since its tuft (hairs) fell off completely.
This happens when the adhesive holding the tuft to the handle/ body is not there anymore.
I also remember our college professor telling us that your tools will eventually bend according to the way you hold it. True enough, they now have a special bent form exact for my grip or hold.
- An assortment of round brushes you can buy from Deovir with different fibers like Sable, goat hair, and synthetic.
I mostly use these for smaller works and for fine details. I prefer using synthetic fiber for very thin lines and details so that the stiffness of the brush helps me control where the paint goes.
