Tim Holtz Water Brush - one empty paintbrush with refillable chamber that does not leak. Another name for water brush is Aquabrush (aqua as in water).
The Tim Holtz Water Brush with Detailer Tip water fillable paintbrush is an essential tool for everyone including watercolourists, artists, journalers, typographers, illustrators, colourists and paper crafters. The fine synthetic bristles are flexible and hold their shape well.
This waterbrush allows you to shade and highlight stamped images to give them a beautiful watercolour effect. Simply fill the easy-squeeze reservoir with water then 'paint' any surface already coloured with water-soluble ink, dye, or paint. The Tim Holtz Water Brush has an anti-leak, controlled delivery system. Being a fine-tip brush nib, it is ideal for detailing and writing as well as colouring areas. Also includes a protective cap. The overall length of the brush is 6 inches (with cap).
How to Use ... Fill the chamber with water to have it ready for painting and colouring everywhere you go. The tight fitting lid ensures there is no leakage.
- The controlled water delivery system of the Tim Holtz Water Brush allows for optimal paint mixing and surface coverage. No need for squeezing constantly for a continued flow of water or ink once first used after filling.
- To fill, either squeeze the chamber while under water (and suck in the water) or pull out the black valve, being careful to not damage the seal. Squeeze gently to prime.
Why? ... A refillable water brush enables you to paint with watercolour paints, inks and pencils everywhere you go without the requirement of a jar of water to wash your brush. It is self cleaning, simply wipe on a cloth to clean the brush tip. You can treat it like a regular paint brush and use dry and swish it in a jar of water too. Use in the comfort of your lounge room, a studio, while at camp or on the bus going to work. Everywhere!
Alternatively, fill with your favourite colour for use as customised brush pens for calligraphy, lettering, painting, colouring and journaling.
Only for use with water and waterbased liquids ... like fountain pen inks, watercolour ink, Dylusions Ink Sprays and Tim's Spray Stains (eg, not solvents or acrylic inks). Don't fill with Distress Oxides because any inks with powdered pigments or mica powders may block the valve.
