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.

Waterbrushes 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.

Waterbrushes 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 waterbrush 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!

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.

By faieonline - See all my reviews
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.

This brush is perfectly sized to fit into my custom watercolor travel kit! The bottle, not so much, but I figure I can carry that in my pocket along with my mini art book. The bristles are soft and short, giving nicely controlled strokes. The tip is not very fine, but it's fine enough to create some details along with broader strokes.

The only thing that keeps this from getting a full five stars is that the water is not completely secured into the body when the brush is inserted into it. Natural water tension will keep the water from pouring out of the hole, even when held upside down. But some drops will come out when you give it a firm shake. I'm not sure how well it holds up when rattled around in the sketch kit, and I'm not willing to test it empty (because that's not realistic of how it would be normally carried) nor full, because I don't want my paints to get wet and leak everywhere in the event water does get shaken out. So to be an absolutely perfect product, I'd like to have some kind of slip cap to go over the end. (Of course, you could always fashion one out of an empty ink bladder or waterballoon, something like that.)
