First of all, I really like the option Mr Li gives to purchase as a set or separately.
I bought two of the soft sheep hair brushes and just left them hanging for a long time. Looking for a new calligraphy brush, I picked up one of these sheep hair and soaked off the glue.
I am very impressed! This brush appears to be 100% animal hair. I detest nylon mixed hair brushes.....this is just my opinion. But finding true high quality brushes is not easy. It behaved beautifully with the ink, the tip is sharp for small scale work, and the belly is fat for larger scale work. Nice, responsive brush I recommend to both beginners and beyond. 😃 Buy two!
I love this set of brushes. It's a very wise choice for those like me just beginning to learn Chinese painting. Since receiving, I've found myself reaching for the sheep hair brush the most. We've bonded, so to speak. I love it so much I may order another just to have on hand for when I wear my first one out. Yes, I use it that much!
Also, don't let the price fool you; they are high quality. I enjoy using these far more than ANY of my western watercolor brushes. Give them a try & break into this beautiful & ancient art.
