This brush is perfectly...
July 15, 2014
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.)
