Description
The innovative design of these SAI brush pens from Akashiya is what helped it win the 2007 ISOT Stationery of the Year award in Japan. SAI brushes have the potential to revolutionize painting as we know it, allowing artists to create beautiful artwork from an elegant, non-messy tool. The brushes are a great combination of traditional sumi-e (Asian art) brush quality and modern brush functionality and portability.

SAI brushes are the first of its kind to reproduce water-soluble brushes in a self-contained, disposable form. It can be used with a water brush (such as the Pentel Aquash) to produce amazing gradients and effects. Colors can be mixed with water to create lighter shades, combined with other colors to create new colors, etc. The brushes are always ready to paint whenever you are, and you can cap them when you are finished. No wonder they created so much buzz in Japan. JetPens is proud to search out great products like these and bring them to you!

The following pictures show some painting techniques and example artwork that can be created using these brushes:

There are 20 beautiful individual brush ink colors. See what they look like either unaltered or diluted on paper below:

A special pigment ink waterproof outline brush is also available for drawing purposes. The following picture shows a leaf drawn with an outline brush and a leaf drawn using the regular black water-soluble brush:

Like many watercolors, the SAI brush colors other than black are not light resistant, so colors will fade if kept in sunny areas. These brushes are perfect for journaling or painting artwork for indoors.

This pen could sell for twice as much as still qualify as a great buy. Not as fine a brush as the more expensive ones BUT CLOSE.
