Water brushes are a fairly new invention from Japan that have quickly gained popularity all around the world. There is a lot of potential in these brushes, as they eliminate the tools normally needed for watercolor paintings. They are also extremely portable, allowing one to paint on the go.

Wish it would include instructions on how to use the 2way part because I'm super confused. Lol! But I love the large coverage it gives and the bristles are so soft! Super fast shipping & I highly recommend kuretake waterbrushes.

Needing flat bristle...
February 19, 2016

Needing flat bristle water brush to supplement the round bristle ones I already have, I gave Kuretake a try. It's almost perfect. It loads watercolor well and the bristles hold ample water after just one squeeze of the barrel. I can get pretty good washes from it. As a blender, it does the job quite well. My only complaint is that it took me a while to figure out how to fill it with water. There is a black end cap on the barrel with a teeny hole that made pouring water into it nearly impossible. I was too afraid to try to remove it, fearing that I might ruin the water brush. But then I remembered my physics lessons: filled a plastic bin with water, squeezed out all the air from the barrel, and (while holding it firmly squeezed in my hand) submerged the barrel into the bin of water. Loosened my grip. Boom! Water sucked inside and filled the barrel completely. Like a turkey baster. So now that I know how to fill it, I'm going to get a ton of use out of it when I do my travel sketches.

The 2 way thing is interesting...

The 2 way thing is interesting, but not that practical. I usually end up just leaving it flat and then the bristles just get used to being in that position.

I prefer the Pentel Aquash's filling mechanism. I'd rather fill the barrel with a pipette than squeeze it in a cup.... or swear a lot while trying to remove the little black plug...

This is a very nice brush...
September 3, 2015
This is a very nice brush but when you take the end off to get the specially long brush, that end will not go back on and stay on when you replace the cap. You remove the cap and the end stays inside. Now you can't put the cap back on because the end is in there and all the bristles will be ruined. I have tried fishing the end out but the same thing happens again. I don't know if I got a bad model or if this is a design flaw. Otherwise it is a fabulous waterbrush so I am VERY sad!
