This is a set of very classic and versatile Gongbi painting brushes. These fine brushes are made with pure weasel hair. They are designed especially for drawing fine lines and small details.

Price is for a set of 5 such brushes with different sizes. Inkston also supplies 0903Ws Weasel Hair Gongbi Brush. The 0903Ws brush is similar to #3 brush of this brush set. After several months testing, we feel the 0903Ws brush hair has higher quality. When rinsing off the starch from hair for first time, the 0903Ws brush lose almost 0 single hair at all. However, when we rinsing this Gongbi brush set, we can notice 2 to 5 hairs lost in water. Nevertheless, losing 2 to 5 hairs is not considered as a quality problem for one set of 5 gongbi detailed brushes. Here are some photos about how to prepare this set of brush for the first time use.




Light & fast growing Bamboo is used as a construction material, as food, to make paper, to make stems for brushes, and as a traditional subject for painting.

“Wolf” brushes use hair from the Chinese “Yellow mouse wolf” 黄鼠狼 – a type of weasel.  Premium Dong Lang Hao “Winter Wolf” brushes use the extra thick hairs produced in the winter in the cold and snowy  North East China. The best weasel hair is fine and glistening, smooth and elastic and suitable for both large and small brushes.

Weasel hair is not as quite stiff as rabbit hair but stiffer than wool and combination brushes, so it is preferred for detail work and regular script calligraphy (楷书 Kaishu). Weasel hair has lower absorption rate than wool and the hair is strong & flexible. Therefore, it performs very well on painting dry and ‘bone’ effects and for example for painting tree trunks with dry ink such as su ink.  Wolf brushes are easier to control than Wool brushes and so are also recommended for beginners.

    Fabulous Wool Brush
    This Red Star wool brush is a great brush. I own one of these brushes that I purchased from Inkston about 2 months ago. I wish I owned the full set. (I have the #2 brush from the left in the supplied photo.) I primarily paint landscapes and this brush is great for that. I really like using this brush. It holds it’s tip well. And, it is what you’d call a wet brush as it holds either color or ink beautifully allowing you to fully exhaust your brush before reloading.. Inkston is also a wonderful company. They ship quickly and pack their product expertly to avoid damage in shipping. I highly recommend this company and these brushes.
