The Kuretake Watercolor brush is high quality, easy to refill, convenient to carry around, and available in small, medium, and large brush head sizes. They can be used with different paint media including the Kuretake watercolor set as well as traditional watercolor paints.

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!

It's okay.

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...

I found this water brush harder to fill and use than other water brushes. Squeezing it under water to fill took a long time compared to just putting the Pentel Aquash under the tap and letting it fill up. Taking out the little black plug to widen the opening for easier filling looked so difficult that I didn't even try it, and really, I wouldn't want to have to do that every time. Also, the water control with this brush seemed spotty: I don't know if it's prone to bubbles, or water flows through it slowly or what, but it seemed to often need me to shake/blot/squeeze repeatedly to get water to flow to the tip, where the Aquash brushes seem better about giving you the amount of water you want for your squeeze. Overall, because of the filling and water control issues, I'll stick with the Aquash-style brushes.

I like the quality of the brush, and the refill method isn't too bad--just repeatedly squeeze the reservoir part under running water. But the cap doesn't stay on the end of the brush at all.
