Brand

红星 [Hong Xing] or in English “Red Star” is China’s premium brand from China Hong Xing Xuan Paper Group and uses only the finest grade materials and strict quality control process. This is reflected in the price and quality of their products.

Materials

“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.

    Great quality and lovely communication

    I just wanted to say that I am so happy with my large Red Star “Pro Jing Zhua Yang Hao XL” wool brush!

    A tip that if you buy one, be very patient and diligent to remove the starch from the brush. It will take several hours of gentle removal from a brush that large.

    This brush is a stiff type. It holds the point extremely well to create strong, sharp lines. For the gong bi style, this brush is good for long lines, leaf veins, flower branches, and so on. I enjoy using this for details and when I want to create lines with a “dry bone” effect. Think plum blossom branches (Google is your friend). It has been perfect for the above uses so far.

    I ordered this one along with the medium and small version. It works as intended, the brushes hold their water and keep their tip with a spring. It is also flexible and distributes colors well.

    This is the another brush (beside 0903Ws 花枝俏 “Flower Brush”) which I use everyday. A real good friend. I recommend it to everyone – and it’s a basic item, so you must have one

    I use this brush almost every day. It’s possible to create strokes thinner then a human hair. The brush-hair is firm enough to make confident strokes (I am not an advanced user) After three months of usage still no signs of wear and tear. It’s a valuable tool.

  • Lovely quality brush. Soft but springy and holds ink well. One of my favourite brushes which I use extensively for landscape painting.

    Fine detail brush

    Quality Inkston Brush
    This is a beautiful brush, excellent for standard and cursive style characters. The point is retained through movement so it’s easy to find the center. Holds a good amount of ink. Nicely constructed, very good price for this quality.

    At it’s best, this brush is wonderful for very small cursive …
    I wanted to see how a brush of this size and unusual length would work with cursive calligraphy. At it’s best, this brush is wonderful for very small cursive characters. The stiffness works nicely and is responsive. It’s more of a challenge to get a much thicker line since using the brush up higher in the bristles tends to spread the thick hairs and lets in dry spaces. However, this is expected in a brush styled like this and can make for interesting variety in strokes. I am using this brush primarily for signatures on calligraphy work and for small character cursive. Excellent construction and quality.

    Good flexible calligraphy brush
    This brush has great flexibility, especially for cursive writing. It dances!

  • Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent value.
    This is a goat hair brush that has a wonderful spring to it. I bought it for cursive and it performs flawlessly. Excellent construction. I can move from very thin line to thicker smoothly.

    Verified Purchase
    … both paper and brushes from Inkston and have been pleased each time

    I have ordered several items both paper and brushes from Inkston and have been pleased each time. The price, the quality, and the service have always been excellent. I have used the brush for fine and detailed work. I can think of no downside to the brush. It did come with a white silk sleeve that I would not recommend for brush storage but I may find some other use for it. This a fine brush.

    Muy recomendable por su punta, muy fina y al mismo tiempo puede funcionar como pincel plano.

    Fabulous Brush
    I received my brush yesterday. I was very surprised at the wonderful quality of this brush. It is fabulous. I can’t wait to actually do a full painting with it. I tried it out and it dances on the paper! So excited. Inkston company also has my highest recommendation. They are a very classy company with top quality products. Every care is taken with your purchase. My brush came in a cloth holder and also had a sample of Xuan (rice) paper in a beautiful folded gold packet. Very special touch. This is a great brush!

    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.
