Watercolor brushes

Nylon brushes and animal hair brushes, it is recommended that everyone buy animal hair. Gouache and oil paints are relatively dry, do not need too much water, and a more structured nylon pen can help color better. However, watercolor painting requires a lot of water, and animal hair has better water absorption, and at the same time is more tough, and the brush edge is relatively smooth and regular. In these respects, nylon pens are inferior to natural hair.

The animals are divided into sheep hao and wolf hao

Sheep milli

: Relatively soft, it is recommended that beginners can use this first,

Wolf milli

: The brush is relatively hard. The F brush of horsehair is less common and relatively hard, and the hook brush can choose the wolf brush,

Pens made of mink or squirrel hair: These two types of hair absorb water very well and are very soft. Red fat 00 is a squirrel pen, large water storage, but also eat paint, red fat people generally use it in the background, and not much at other times. The price is about 140 a piece, beginners are recommended not to buy. Of course, the local tyrants buy it directly~

Nylon watercolor pen set, Marley’s nylon watercolor pen has good elasticity, but the water storage is average, but this is easier to master for novices who are not good at water control.

Chinese brushes are also very easy to use, generally three to four can be,

Tap pen, this pen can be filled with water, easy to carry out, with solid watercolor is very good, suitable for drawing handbooks, sketches and the like.

Silicone pen: It is used when applying white liquid. Basically, I don’t think it’s necessary, just use a pen that is not very distressed to apply the white liquid,

Automatic pencil: generally used to draw line drawings

Water-soluble colored pencil: when exposed to water, it will melt and be used to draw line drawings,

Autumn Hongzhai’s showiness and dyeing
