Richeson Chinese Watercolor Brushes

Chinese brushes were originally designed as writing instruments. It was the West that discovered many uses for them as fine art tools. The types and uses of animal hair is very different in China than it is in Europe. The numbering of Chinese calligraphy brushes is also different.

White Goat Calligraphy Brushes - Number 1 is largest, number 6 is smallest. A beautiful brush series. This brush works well for watercolor and points very well. It has a beautiful appearance with a very unique ornate handle.

Soft Rabbit Watercolor Brushes - Number 1 is largest, number 3 is smallest. Probably the greatest student brush ever made. This brush is made with soft rabbit hair and it holds color well. It comes to a fantastic point when wet and has a very plain bamboo handle.

Horse Hair Watercolor Brushes - Number 1 is largest, number 6 is smallest. If an artist is familiar with a Chinese Brush, the chances are that it is this style. Designed originally for lettering, the original concept is that only the tip is used when applying color. Made with horse hair. The handle is bamboo and traditional in appearance.

Brush sizes - The length and width of brushes given shape and size may vary by brand as brush sizes are not standardized. Most fine art brushes are handmade and as such some variation is expected even among brushes from within a single brush line.
