Travel Brushes, also known as retractable or pocket paint brushes, are collapsible painting tools ideal for watercolour artists painting on the go. They commonly have retractable plastic or metal handles split into two parts. When the bottom and top halves of these brushes are assembled, they feel and perform like a standard watercolour painting brush. They have the added bonus that - when retracted - the bottom half of the handle gives protection to the brush tip, ensuring that it isn't damaged on your painting trips. Small and compact, they're perfect for popping in a bag or paint box.
