The brush handle comes with a piston-filler that precisely controls the amount of ink/water into and out of the reservoir.
The exterior of this Chinese brush pen is more like a regular fountain pen. It got a cap which not only protects the brush when it is not in use but also serves as an extension to the handle as needed. Its compact fountain pen design makes it easy to carry around. Ideal for ink drawing, watercolor journaling, sumi-e and kanji calligraphy, and great to work with half pans, watercolor pencils, soluble crayons, and pastels.
Bristle Type: Synthetic Wolf Hair
100% high quality synthetic bristles with sharp pointed tip, which fits back into the cap easily. It's good for details and outlines. Fill it with water, or color ink if you prefer.
Tip size: 1/2" x 1/4" ; Brush Length: 5 1/2"(capped)
The brush is very easy to clean, just squeeze out some water and brush it on a paper towel. Main care tip for the water brushes would be to clean and drain them before storing them when they are not going to be used for a while.
*Please make sure the brush is well-pointed and carefully insert it into the metal cap. Do not force a split dry brush head inside the cap because the loose hair could touch the inner cap and crush. Also, please note that there's no "stopper click" on the cap, so please gently insert the brush into the cap and avoid crushing the brush by over-pushing.
