Using my Water brush to do some faded shades

Colour details

I wanted a half-colour mi rant effect in the architecture to show the beauty of the marbling underneath

2nd part – dipping the packaging into the sealing wax so they stay closed in the post, for @_mobeenakhtar_

Is quite a process, the packaging and posting – took as long for me to figure these out as it was to create the brushes. This sometimes neglected part is crucial to ensure they arrive to you in one piece

3rd part upcoming

Preparing a brushes order for packaging and shipping for @_mobeenakhtar_

This is how I do it – first sort brushes and especially put the Clouds brushes with their respective flags. When customers receive them I encourage them to write on the raw wood handles exactly what the brush is for, ie customise them yourself and make them yours (eg: miniature outlines/fine detail etc – or whatever works for you). Then stick on packaging stickers. I found that aluminium tubes work best as they are lightest and strongest, as I have a lot of international orders esp to the US and this is the only way they won’t arrive bent (as one did, before...

My brushes are not designed to only look good, they are working tools designed to be used. You see lacquered brush handles a lot but I insist on plain raw wood handles as it improves grip and you can really feel what you’re doing with the tools. Yes, it does mean they get a bit messy after a while. Use them, even write on them to remind you what specific technique they’re for or whether they are gold-only (something you can’t easily do with lacquered handles) get them dirty (and clean up at the end, take good care of them!) The main point of tools is to use them, not so they stagnate on a display shelf as they are not jewellery....

Holding the gold

Using my brushes - designed so they are pointed and long enough to hold the gold and letting me draw long lines and start to render without having to constantly re-dip, which is annoying

An old Chinese legend tells of a poor little boy who loves to paint. He can't afford a paintbrush, so he draws instead. Then one day, he gets given a paintbrush by a magical old man - and whatever the boy paints turns out to be real. He helps his fellow poor people by painting things they need and eventually it reaches the Emperor's ears. However, the Emperor is greedy and wants only gold, and forces the little boy to paint things for him against his will.  When the Emperor asks for a ship on the sea and some waves to go sailing, the clever little boy keeps on painting waves until they drown the ship, and then he simply walks awa...
