Made of rooster feather, which is between soft and stiff, this specialty brush can produce very rich textured strokes. It comes with an extra long handle which is made of "Buddha's belly" bamboo. Perfect for the "loosening-up" style of Sumi-e landscape paintings, fantastic for expressive rendering of flowers, and perfect for abstract Zen-style calligraphic paintings.

I'd use different brush to achieve different effect. I keep a collections of more than 200 brushes for myself. The rooster feather brush is one of my favorite secret weapons. It is very rare, so I have special ordered it for you and my students. It is really fun to paint with.
