This compact size Kuretake watercolor brush is 1.25 inches shorter than the standard sized brush. The Kuretake Watercolor brush is high quality, easy to refill and convenient to carry around. They can be used with different paint media including the Kuretake watercolor set as well as traditional watercolor paints. Small, medium and large brush head sizes are available.

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.

Water brushes are so simple to use, anyone can enjoy it. Just fill the water brush with water and you have a brush that is moist and ready to paint. One full water brush can paint an entire canvas without the need to refill! They're great for blending watercolor paints to create a natural, smooth gradient of colors. They beautifully complement watercolor sets such as the Akashiya brushes and the Pentel Aquash. The brushes are very easy to clean, just squeeze out some water and brush onto a paper towel or sponge. They are perfect for on the go painting. Once you try it, you will be hooked!

This short barrel waterbrush...
September 8, 2015

This short barrel waterbrush is equipped with a medium size tip of white nylon filaments. Its green neon color make it easy to spot and find among your supplies on the go. Its water carrying capacity is large enough to complete several small watercolor sketches without refilling. It can pick up color directly from watercolor pans, or it can be used to blend dry watercolor pencil marks.

While I already own several waterbrushes, I just couldn't resist adding this green one to my collection. I tend to use medium size tips more frequently than any other size. To clean it between color changes, you can simply press the barrel to flush it and wipe it on a tissue or paper towel.

While the waterbrush white tip might get stained with some pigments (particularly green ones), it does not hinder its functionality. Successive washes do not get contaminated with the stained brush tip.

The compact travel waterbrush would make a great addition to any sketching kit and allow you to employ watercolor techniques with minimal setup and quick clean up.

works well, easy to fill, a bit firm on the squeeze, shed a few hairs at the beginning but seems to be doing just fine.

Brush works really well. It's a little difficult to get the water into the pen, but worth it for the convenience of having a water brush.
