Tim Holtz WaterBrush - Flat Wide Brush Tip ... 1 (one) empty paintbrush with refillable chamber that does not leak.
The Tim Holtz Water Brush with Flat Tip (1cm wide) refillable paintbrush is an essential tool for everyone including painters, watercolourists, artists, journalers, calligraphers, illustrators, colourists and paper crafters. The durable synthetic bristles are flexible and hold their shape well. The flat brush tip allows you to create smooth blends and washes, stripes, fan shapes, chisel style markings, and large lettering.
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. Also includes a protective cap. The overall length of the brush is 6 inches (with cap). The brush tip is approx 1cm wide.
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 with water ... the easiest way is to unscrew the top and using a jug, mug or bowl of water, squeeze the chamber when out of the water and let go to suck in the water.
- To fill with inks ... Pour the ink into a small cup or dish and fill the same way as you do water (squeeze and suck, then pour excess back into the bottle) - or - after undoing the tip, gently pull out the black valve, being careful to not damage the seal, then pour in or use a pipette to suck up ink from the ink bottle to fill the waterbrush chamber. Push the valve back in and screw the tip back on.
- To use after filling ... Squeeze gently to prime and enjoy!
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. This waterbrush is great for colouring and blending stamped images to give them a beautiful watercolour effect.
