Sample text

Let the cover dry completely, keeping your brush in the water while you’re not using it. You may speed up the process with a blow dryer or let it dry naturally for an hour or so. 5. Stop there if you want, or embellish by going on to Steps 6 through 9. 6. Embellish by painting a Chinese character (or whatever you feel like). Use a round brush to make marks that resemble a Chinese character. Push down to make a wide stroke or pull the brush to make a line, lifting the brush as you pull to reduce the width of the line.

If brushes dry mushed, they stay that way, so if you travel with art supplies (as you may when going to and from a class), you need to protect your wet brushes from getting smashed. Pointed brushes especially need protection if you want to keep that fine pointed tip — after all, that’s the reason you bought that brush. If you like the protection idea, go to a florist and get one of those plastic, rubber-capped test tubes that holds water for a single flower stem; these covers really protect a brush when traveling.

That’s right; you’re painting your masterpieces with the coat of a wild pig. The hairs on soft brushes typically come from the sable, a mink-like creature that lives mainly in Russia. Natural brushes can be very expensive but are of exceptional quality. Chapter 2: Setting Up Supplies: Brushes, Surfaces, and Palettes ߜ Synthetic hairs: Manufacturers have figured out some pretty nifty synthetic knock-offs. The reward for artists is that the price is right and the quality is not compromised. It’s a win-win for everyone: You get to keep more of your hard-earned money, and the animals get to keep their hair.
