The flexible nylon fibres of the Koi WaterBrush produce fine lines or bold strokes.

With a 9 ml water reservoir at your fingertips, water storage and painting on the go has never been so easy! The transparent barrel indicates the water level, and the brush separates into two parts: a fine brush tip, and a barrel handle with a plug to carry the water. The comfortable grip is great for controlled blending, shading, and highlighting.

The brush is available in three sizes: small (#2 round), medium (#6 round), and large (#8 round).

Functionality

I love how the brush comes in two pieces. As an urban sketcher, I keep my paints (and now my brushes) in a case that fits into my pocket. Really practical. Thanks Opus!

Great for on the go!

When I first started painting with watercolours (about 7 years ago), I purchased the Koi Water Brushes with the small water wells.

The larger well on this brush allow for longer sessions in between water replenishment which I really love. The bristles are quite fine considering what they're composed of (very different than a typical watercolour brush, more plastic-y) and come to a decent point. The brush cap is genius - no more squished bristles - just don't lose it! Because the cap is clear, if you drop it while painting outside it may be hard to locate on the ground- a tip is to paint half of the cap a bright colour - that way if you drop it you can find it more easily. Also (just because I didn't know this), the black cap little **** cap thing it comes with is supposedly meant to be a water stopper, so you can take the brush apart and travel with the water loaded in the barrel. If you are working with a tiny kit, this is ideal because when fully built the brush can be about the length of a standard short-handle brush. So don't throw that away if this is something you may find useful!

I do wish the water flow was a bit better (ideally, if it was more similar to the Pentel Colour Brush for ink flow) then it would be great. When I squeeze on the barrel I find that I either get wayyy to much water or not enough - I just haven't found the sweet spot yet.

Overall, if you are looking for a water-brush to take with you while painting outside I think it's a good option, both for function and for variation in sizing.

Doesn’t work

I replaced this brush and am still having the sample problem. The water does not come out properly.
