essential brushes for ceramics
Comments about Blick Brown Hair Sumi Brush:
Purchased in bulk for use in a ceramic studio classroom where the brushes will receive abuse by the nature of the materials. Excellent for slip, glaze and oxide application, these are considered part of a basic tool/brush foundation. Pricing has gone up considerably since my last purchase which is disappointing (and thus the 4-star rating), but there is not a better deal to be found out there if you are a teacher looking to manage a budget.

worth the price
from cols. oh
When I first used this brush I ran it under the tap of the sink. I dipped in into the sumi ink and had no control what so ever. I could not get it to keep a point. So then I soaked it in water before I started to paint and IT WORKED LIKE A DREAM. So it has to be very wet with water, watercolor paint, ink, or a mixture of any of the above. Like any brush you have to know how to use it. It does not have a hanging hook which is standard for sumi brushes. It only shed a little at first but now holds up when I squeeze all of the water out of it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
great entry level brushes
By contemplative educator to be
from charlottesville, va
I am beginning to explore Japanese style enso drawing and I am happy with the cost and quality of the brushes. The handles are plastic and i would have liked to know that when i was purchasing them. Now that i have used them, i wish i had purchased a larger size as well but am happy with the quality of the brush hairs over all.

such a disappointment
By Lil Judy
from Denver, CO
These brushes are cheap quality, hairs shed worse than my cat. Handles are PLASTIC..cheap feel matches the cheap quality. Total waste of my money. Rather than getting frustrated with the poor control and shedding this set is going in the trash. Useless.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

These are soft brushes.
By Little Wings
from Turin, NY
Novices like myself will apreciate knowing that these brushes are the soft type, more suited for the fusy,soft background or the flowing mane and tail of a horse. For these they do well. To begin with, a hard brush is best for the course layed out in the Sumi Book. All the same I enjoy using them immensly, even at the start.
