The mizubake (water brush) dispenses a consistent stream of water to dampen paper for printing.
You can apply watercolor washes with the mizubake. Never use acrylic or oil paints, or any equivalent when painting directly with this brush.
- Wash the hairs of the brush with cold water. If using the brush for a watercolor wash, rinse immediately after use to best prevent staining.
- Let the water drain by placing the brush flat on the countertop with hairs over the sink.
- Hang your brush with the head (hairs side) down and let dry in the shade.
