    I'm not sure what you are going to do with your brush but a 1st quality brush used by traditional paper sizers, people whom size paper for printmakers, etc, would be one sound choice for some tasks.

    In the same vein, a 1st quality brush used by japanese traditional woodblock artists to moisten paper in preparation for printing would be good as well.

    Either would be well made so as not to shed hairs and to load and release their load in an even manner. IIRC, these are made with sheep wool and goat hair and there is no metal in their construction. If you're serious about getting a good brush, be careful to not get a brush made for amateur printmakers, while well made, they are not the same as the better tool.

    Here is an article that will point you to a brush-maker of quality tools in Japan. He will be better able to advise you as to what you will want.

    About sizers brushes, other than David's (other) article, do you have any more information on these brushes?

    Hi Ray.

    I am up in Niigata and they changed the times on the program, then it disappeared. Sad to say, it was pretty good.

    But thanks for the info.

    Ray, I do not. I don't use these papers in general and I don't size my own paper. I suggest you look at the 'library' at Barenforum.org and read about traditional japanese printmaking in some of the older books there. IIRC, some of them give some detailed descriptions of the tools various craftsmen used in making the paper, sizing it, etc.

    Cheers

    Thanks.

    If it helps, I've been using the same Richeson brush with kallitypes for several years now with no problems. I clear the brush with citric acid and then final rinse with distilled water after each printing session. Still good as new.

    Not to be too self serving, but I have to give a plug to the Sterling 6014S synthetic sable brush which Bostick & Sullivan sells. Excellent results, comparable to Richeson, but around 1/3 the price. The 2" version will easily coat 8x10" and 11x14" images, and use around 25% less solution than the typical hake brush.

    We sell the 2" for $14.95, but you could also probably find one at a good art supply store for about the same.

    I started using Hake for my palladium prints, and I love the stroke they leave on the edge of the coating (if you care about such stuff ) - but they absorb too much precious coating. I also experienced some detachment of the coating from the paper after rinsing, which I didn't have with a syntetic brush.
    Then I tried the Da Vinci Cosmotop flat wash (synthetic) and it works perfectly. Thin profile, absorbs very little when moist at the right point, very smooth. I don't know if you can find at in your location.
    Hmm, human hair brushes? What for? Voodooburytype?
