, August 4, 2013
The brushes on the Holbein water pens are SO wonderful! Very soft and springy,
way better than any other water brush I've tried. Unfortunately, when you
squeeze for more water, it comes out the sides of the nib WAY too quickly! You
have to be extremely careful not to squeeze hard at all, or you will have water
everywhere! The pens hold a lot of water, but since so much comes out it kind
of cancels that out. I still prefer the Kuretake water brushes, even though the
bristles don't last very long.

The brush it's self wasn't so bad, when I got it to work at least. (sort of got
it to work?) I don't know if I got a defective one, but my brush pen will not
twist open in order to allow the chamber to fill. The only way I could get it is
if I submerged the brush in water/ink/paint I was wokring with and squeezed in.
But when I got it up and working,the strokes were nice,but it releases liquid
way too fast. I don't think I'd purchase this product again.
