The Michihamono carrying brush, also known as the 'hakobi brush' in Japan, is a finely crafted tool that is widely used in watercolour woodcut printing applications. Made from finely split bamboo fibres, it easily dissolves paint and transfers the pigment to the woodblock, offering a distinct advantage over regular nylon-bristled brushes due to its ability to hold more paint in its fibres.
This carrying brush is an essential tool for artists who desire a direct transfer of paint to the woodblock. Simply gather paint on the fibres of the brush and transfer it to the woodblock. After use, rinse off the paint and allow the brush to dry completely. You can customize the length of the brush tip according to the size of the woodblock that you are working on.
Approximate product details:
- Material of the Bristles: Bamboo skin fibres
- Wooden Handle
Please note that due to the natural bamboo fibres used in the bristles of the brush, the bristles may harden when not in use. To fix this, soak the carrying brush bristles in warm water and beat the tip of the bristles with a wooden mallet to loosen the cuticle from the fibres of the bamboo skin.
