DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
This watercolor brush with Light Black ink goes along well with watercolor sets and conveniently refills with ink cartridges.

This brush is more of a Light Black color rather than a Gray because the color is slightly transparent. That is, it's not a Black color mixed with White to create Gray, but rather a more diluted Black color.

The body of the Pentel Aquash Watercolor brush is also shorter and more ergonomically shaped than the Pentel Standard brush line. With the cap on, this brush measures 15.5 cm (6.10 inches) while the Pentel Standard brush measures 17.5 cm (6.89 inches) with the cap on.

Finally a brush that...

Finally a brush that is water proof and grey ink color. It is not one of those regular Pentel brushes that is not waterproof but I took a risk and I'm glad I did.

This brush is hard to find on Jetpens site as it is located under watercolors. I think it should be separate or together with Pentel Pocket brush which is also waterproof.

So now we have a grey waterproof color brush that can compliment the Pocket Pentel brush (or other waterproof brush).

I use this constantly with the standard Pentel brush pen. The tip has held up beautifully through heavy use, and can be used for fine details as well as large washes. When shading large spaces, it can start to look a little rough and patchy even when you work fast, but that's a minor issue. It can run VERY wet if you give the body a good squeeze, to the point where I can use it for splatter if I want to. A plus for my uses, but be cautious of it! I recommend using it on smooth paper for a clean line, as it tends to skip on textured paper. It WILL bleed through most stuff! Use it judiciously or on heavier, watercolour-grade paper.

Love love LOVE this brush pen. The ink is a little too dark for my liking but it lightens up a bit. The lighter of the two ink washes in this photo was made by this pen: http://instagram.com/p/wU9KWuHYpm/?modal=true

This pen works great!

The bristles are very flexible and allow for a massive range of line thicknesses. The ink flow is smooth and slow. The only things I could complain about were the fact that the brush does need reshaping rather frequently, as the overall shape of the brush becomes a bit deformed after several strokes.

I did have to look up instructions on how to use it, because on the packaging they are in Japanese, but it was simple enough to figure out.

Remove the red collar to allow the ink to flow into the brush, then screw the brush back on all the way down. Then carefully squeeze the barrel to get the ink flowing (don't squeeze too hard and don't leave the brush half of the pen loose, otherwise the ink will drop out).
That's pretty much all you have to do.
You do not need to rinse out the bristles.

Overall, this was a great purchase! I'm very happy with the brush. It's great for making dramatic, dynamic lines.
