Welcome to dickblick
These professional-grade wash brushes contain super-soft sheep's hair that's carefully selected and hand stitched into a one-piece hand split handle. The brush can be permanently divided into smaller sections by breaking apart the split handle. They can be used with a wide range of media and are well suited for ceramic art.
Because these are handmade brushes, there might be slight variations in size and hair length.

These brushes spread paint beautifully.
By 7day painter
from Ventura, CA
These brushes are made from really soft hair so they spread fluid paints beautifully. The one drawback is that they shed while you paint, so you must watch for the strands of hair and remove them as you are painting. However, this brush performs amazing, so they are great for backgrounds and layering large areas.
good brush for price, just don't separate
from San Diego
These brushes are nice provided you do not try to separate the segments as described. The middle segments are not strong enough to stand alone.

Inexpensive but functional
Clearly, these aren't top of the line, however they are nicer than the price point would imply. After opening the package, there where a couple loose hairs to clean off but it doesn't seem to be shedding (I think the loose hairs just didn't get cleaned off...these are cheap, so that shouldn't come as a surprise). These work well for loose watercolor washes, they are very soft so they hold a lot of water and don't lend themself to sharp strokes or details: perfect for loose, flowing work. These are also wonderful for glazing pottery for the same reasons. These are easy to find if you live in a city that has import stores, but I don't, so it is nice to be able to get these along with my other art supplies from Blick.
Quick and easy!

Yasutomo Hake Brush
from Houston, TX
These brushes are very soft and perfect for the watercolor technique I wish to achiee.
Good brush; doesn't shed.
I use this for sweeping "crumbs" from my colored pencil work and nothing is better or easier to use for this purpose.

I'm using this brush with charcoal powder. The brush is difficult to pull apart, by it is quite functional after you get it pulled apart. Some hairs have fell out, but not as much as I had expected. I think the brush would also work well with brushing graphite, cleaning work areas, or with watercolor. Hope this helps with making a purchase decision.I do use a hake brush for watercolors.
wetting watercolor paper
from Spokane, Wa
I bought this because it was recommended in a how-to book. It really does hold a lot of water and does a good job of wetting the paper evenly. However, it does shed a few bristles so keep a straight pin handy and carefully lift the bristle.
