Materials

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.

  1. Excellent brush for Chinese brush painting
    I have been using this brush for several days. It holds a fine point when painting with ground Chinese ink. I am very pleased with the quality.

  2. 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.

  3. Très bon pinceau
    Je ne suis pas déçue de mon achat car il correspond à mes attentes concernant sa finesse
    J aime dessiner des fleurs avec. Très souple pour dessiner les pétales la réserve d eau est très bonne

  4. great brush for small detail, and good quality.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. The brushes were absolutely amazing. I was really impressed with the fine line brushes and the packaging for them with their own individual cases. The lines formed with those brushes are very nice and I’m excited to use them in my next piece!

  8. This brush is amazing! it keeps a constant sharp point which produces very fine and clean lines.

  9. Love this brush! does great with fine detail and keeps a nice point.

  10. Encantada con este pincel que te permite hacer lineas muy finas. No tira pelo. No se deforma la punta. He comprado varios productos de Inkston y me queda claro que es una empresa que ofrece productos de alta calidad. Los recomiendo.

  11. Encantada con este pincel que te permite hacer lineas muy finas. Es un pincel de alta calidad. He comprado varios productos de Inkston y me queda claro que es una empresa que ofrece productos muy buenos y a un precio razonable. Los recomiendo.

  12. Great seller. Careful packaging and fast delivery. Thanks so much.

  13. Very good and easy to handle brush. I use it for a lot of detail work such as eyes, stems of flowers, and insect painting. It also works well to paint small patches of fur.
