Medium Diameter Boar Hair Brush With 1.5 Inch Long Bristle And Wangi Handle
My Boar Hair brushes are popular with those who work with oils, heavy body acrylics and those who like a unique dry brush. Boar Hair comes from wild boar. The individual hairs are strong and springy, and often have natural split or forked ends. The split ends helps to increase the amount of paint boar hair can hold. Boar hair is good with more viscus paints. Boar hair is the go to material the world over for those who work with oils and heavy body acrylics.
Boar hair is great for “impasto style” brush strokes, which is where paint is applied in thick layers. Impasto style produces a notable texture on the surface.
The stiff nature of Boar hair is also great for drybrush with inks, acrylics, watercolor, and of course oils. Drybrush offers a wide variety of technique and when used with boar hair, it is a quick way to produce grasses, hatches, and any number of fine lines or fine lines combined with thicker color applications.
With a medium diameter handle and a bristle length of about 1.5″ this brush great for covering modest size areas with single strokes, for stippling and a number of other techniques.
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.
My Boar Hair brushes are most popular with artists who work with oils, heavy body acrylics, gouache, and ceramics. The Boar Hair bristle becomes softer in time.
While the Boar Hair brushes are a go to for oil and heavy body acrylics, they are an acquired taste for use with other media due to their springiness and feedback.
This brush will provide years of regular use and enjoyment.
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 a 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 any show and due to this I run out of some 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.
