Faber-Castell Art & Graphic Water Brush

Nothing holds water like this brush! The Faber-Castell Art & Graphic Water Brush is the perfect tool for mixed media artists – just unscrew the top, fill with water, and start painting. Gentle pressure on the barrel will allow water to flow to the tip. Another cool detail: the sharp point on the cap can be used for scratching and scraping techniques.
