Small, Medium, Medium Wangi And Large Diameter Pony Hair Brush Set With 3/4 Inch Long Bristles And Bamboo Cane And Wangi Handles
My Pony Hair brushes are awesome for those who have a light touch and enjoy a very soft and high volume brush. Pony Hair comes from the chest hair of roughly 2 year old ponies. The hair is shaved and the first growth has a a fine tip, and diameter for diameter, Pony hair holds more paint or ink media than just about anything else.
Pony Hair brushes are a unique offering. They provide excellent performance in all sizes but are not springy.
Pony Hair brushes excel with watercolors, inks, aqueous acrylics. They are too soft for viscous paint media types.
The larger diameter brushes can be used to mix colors on the brush and has a great reserve.
The 3/4″ long bristle length is great for detailed work.
The Bamboo Cane handle is light to the touch and very comfortable. The Wangi handle is special and very enjoyable.
The brush set includes a small, medium, medium Wangi handle, and large brushes with bristle diameters that that are.
- The Small-diameter bristle is about 2mm to 4mm
- The Medium diameter bristle is about 5mm to 9mm
- The Wangi Medium diameter bristle is about 7mm to 9mm
- The Large diameter bristle is about 10mm to 12mm
These brushes are workhorses and will provide many years of enjoyment.
The cane handle is light in the hand and has a 10mm to 12mm bristle diameter. This handle is lightly hand carved and oiled. It is very light in the hand. You can spend all day using it. The large diameter handle is good for general applications.
The Wangi handle is a special offering that has a 7mm to 9mm bristle diameter combined with a rare, very light imported bamboo root known as Wangi bamboo. This handle is hand carved and oiled. It is very soft to the touch and light in the hand. You can spend all day using it. The mid-size bristle lets you spend more time applying paint. Mid-size bristles have enough bristle to let you apply 2 different colors on the brush and blend them on the canvas. This technique produces really cool results.
Some important notes
- To see information about the bristle diameter Click here. Note the link opens in a new tab.
- Check with my note about brush sizes to find how I size the brushes.
- My brushes are handmade, and so there are no two which are completely identical. When you order, the handle color may be dark brown, yellow, or something in between.
- If you have a specific request, let me know on a note when you get to the checkout. My brushes are all one of kind creations. The handle color and length will vary with the bamboo I use at the time. I’ll match the brush up to your request as close as I can. Note that unless you provide a note, I will not accept returns due to issues related to the handle color or length.
- I keep a good supply of brushes on hand. I sell up to hundreds of brushes at a show and due to this I run out of some brush types from time to time. If I don’t have one in stock at the time of your order I will let you know.
- If I’m at a show, delivery of your order may be delayed by about a week. I will let you know if that’s the case. I check orders almost every day.
