As if the watercolor brush wasn't small enough, this convenient set makes painting on the go even easier! The watercolor brush included in this set can actually be stored with the medium size tip brush facing inward so that the bristles will be protected AND the size becomes smaller. The set comes with a compact water bottle so that you can create artwork whether traveling on an airplane or through desert terrain.

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.

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. Once you try it, you will be hooked!

This water brush set...

This water brush set is the perfect size for watercolor travel kits. The short brush barrel might pose a problem for people with huge hands. The bottle is able to carry up to 1 oz of liquid. Water flows out of the brush smoothly, unlike the regular size Kuretake water brushes where you have to squeeze hard on the barrel to get the flow going. I'd say function-wise, the brush behaves more like the Pentel Aquash than its full-size Kuretake versions. As for the brush tip, it is the same size as the small Kuretake water brush. All-in-all, I love this product. I'm thinking of buying another one as a spare.

Great inexpensive set!
This water brush works great. The waterbottle holds plenty of water for a day of sketching with watercolors. This set will fit in event he smallest watercolor sets and pairs well with my mini mint tin DIY watercolor sets.

The brush holds a point well and is hidden inside the handle for travel. Easy and convenient.

Go the Petit Set because I wanted to try out waterbrush painting. I think this one is so great I don't feel inclined to upgrade to a full size one anytime soon.
The only problem I've had was my Mom kept borrowing it, so I had to get her one as well.

Also I would love to get some more of those little bottles like the one the set comes with, would jetpens consider stocking?

It's a really a cute little brush, and it performs very well. Length wise, It's a little bit shorter than the Pilot Petit 1 Fountain Pen when capped. The brush size is close to a No 1 Round Brush. I think it will be very portable, and perfect for smaller scale work and sketchbooks.

Very cute brush. I did think the bottle made it less portable than it could be, and ended up making a cap for the other end of the brush so it can be carried with water inside. Here is the 3D printer file if anyone wants to make their own: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:628794
