The Aqua Brush is a refillable multipurpose brush that can be filled with water to blend colours, or with coloured ink and water soluble paints to create a watercolour finish. Featuring a flexible nylon tip which has been specifically treated to absorb and hold the ink for longer lasting strokes. Each brush holds approximately 10ml.
Available in fine, medium and broad tip sizes (equivalent to size 4, 6 & 8 round brushes), a set of all 3 round brushes, a flat tip and also the Medium, Fine and Flat tips as a set of 3.
I saw others using these in my Art class and thought they looked a great idea. I have just bought my own set of 3 and so far only used them with aquarelle graphite pencils whilst working outside. You just fill the barrels with water and hey presto, you are ready to blend your work. They were great and so convenient for outdoors. Just a squeeze of the barrel and the brush self-cleaned as well. I was really pleased with this purchase. Linda C (Liverpool, United Kingdom) on 22 May 2012
Wonderful to take on holiday with sketchbook and watercolour pencils. Sheila Powell (Shoreham By Sea, United Kingdom) on 10 May 2012
I have been using a set of Pentel Aqua brushes every day for the last five months. I have been driving in my motorhome round Norway, Sweden and Finland and every day I have illustrated some aspect of the trip with one or more pen and wash paintings, as an illustrated diary. The brushes retained their shape very well, in spite of all this use. I particularly valued the fine points that survived better than a sable. Space is at a premium in a motorhome so it was perfect to have such compact equipment always ready for use. Alan Padwick (Devizes, United Kingdom) on 15 Sep 2013
