Easy to use for all watercolor techniques, the Museum Aquarelle Waterbrush by Caran D'Ache is ideal for travel and for art classes.
The brush has a built-in water holder that's ready when you are. The flow of water is controlled by a large push-button, and the brush tip's synthetic fibers can be cleaned easily just using water.

I like this water brush
I use a water brush for a diluted ink wash with my ink drawings. This brush has several advantages over others: It is short enough to fit in a shirt pocket. It has a functioning pocket clip. The piston fill allows for cleaner fills when using ink. The piston can be used to easily flush and clean the brush with clear water. The rubber bulb and small barrel port allow for excellent flow control. I have heard a number of cons from acquaintances: 1)it does not hold as much water a some other brushes, and this is true. 2)the number one complaint is about the piston being extended after filling because they do not understand the filling procedure. After pulling the water up into the barrel with the piston, turn the barrel over with the tip end up, and push the piston back in. This expels the excess air in the barrel and the piston is then fully recessed. This is not intuitive, and it should come with instructions. This is my favorite water brush now, and I have tried them all.

Nice Micro Tip. Functions as a syringe to fill with water. The buttons on the side, press once and one drop of water comes out. Works for me. Very nice brush and does not leak.

Love the button to release water
from Apollo beach, FL
Unlike most water brushes, this does NOT suck color into the clean water. I'm happy with it. Wish it was in a flat for large coverage. Great deal!
Great little brush.
By Tess Theredpony
from Puget Sound, WA
Great little brush easy to Control the water flow. The brisles don't seem to stain as easily as some others I've had in the past.q

I thought I would purchase one of the more expensive versions of these brushes, but really, its pretty much just the same as the cheap ones. Doesnt hold that much water, and the button is not really a great creature feature at all, in fact I think just squeezing the cheaper versions is more effective.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Compact Aqua brush
from Oceanside, Ca
This Aqua brush is easy to use, has a water well that pushes inside when no full for easy compact storage. Too fill you just draw back the water barrel while end is submerged in water and it draws the water inside. There are 2 buttons on the sides to cause the water to flow freely through brush for cleaning. Nice for traveling.

you really only need one brush!
from san francisco,ca
This brush is wonderful for field painting. It can go from a quite fine point to, if you sort of smoosh it, a flat! Thanks
Amazing and wonderful water Rush!
I have tried a lot of water rushes, and typically hate them! But love Caran d'Ache products, so thought I'd try this. I love these so much, and at the moment am doing art in my hotel room with them! They are super easy to fill up, hold a lot, flow like a champ, and best of all paint wonderfully and accurately! Plan to put these with all my portable paint sets, but I am currently using them with Supracolors IIs. I love having three different sizes too!

I use this even at home!
By Enthusiastic Dabbler
from Elgin, IL
I bought this several months ago because I needed to lessen the number of items in my travel bag. Now I use it even at home! The brush has kept its shape and point, even after all the use I've put it through. The reservoir is generous for portability' sake. I fill up the barrel by using a clean ear syringe. The tiny tip fits perfectly into the hole in the reservoir. I am about to try other brands but so far, this brush has paid for itself, like all the other Caran d'ache products I own.
